Heartwarming Choice | New Stories
It´s been a while since my last blog post as I’ve been a bit too busy developing my emerging sustainable fashion start-up KiRiVOO that just had a chance to present it´s timeless ready-to-wear collection during London Fashion Week. How awesome! :) But I´m back now and more determined to inspire and encourage all of you to do better and live more meaningful life. Before today my blog was mainly about retail marketing and I just don´t see the point in carrying on exactly the same way. I wish to offer more! Time is limited! So, I’ve faced a turning point and from now on all topics will be more related with sustainable lifestyle, responsible business, doing things in the right way and better.
A HEARTWARMING CHOICE
It was 2012 and I had moved to London to take part in the London College of Fashion´s Fashion Design & Merchandising Summer School. I was also writing my Master´s thesis and working full time for Mothercare Baltics and part time for InesDance at that time. My life was incredibly busy and stressful for quite a long time, so, I faced depression and pneumonia for the first time in my life. I thank my loving husband for helping me get through that hard period. I was not able to find my peace and not satisfied with my life in one of the most exciting city in the world until I decided to make a change, take a break and find more time for myself. That was the breaking point it my life that pushed me to discover better ways of living. I started to care a lot more about myself and what I ate, drunk, what kind of cosmetics I put on my skin, and what kind of clothing I wore. Many people do not know that some textile products can contain harmful chemical residues (allergenic, carcinogenic, toxic substances) that can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin and may cause allergies, skin rashes or respiratory problems. I did my research and understood that I wish to help to reduce the impact of clothing and help the sustainable lifestyle to become the norm, not be an exception.
