Since we launched Outsider in 2009 our focus has always been on ethical production, sustainable fabrics and designing for longevity. We are anti-fast fashion trends, we create the timeless must have pieces you will wear year after year.
The mainstream fashion industry is built upon the exploitation of labour and natural resources. Wealth and power are concentrated in the hands of a few, and growth and profit are rewarded above all else. Big brands and retailers produce too much too fast, and manipulate us into a toxic cycle of overconsumption. Meanwhile, the majority of people that make our clothes are not paid enough to meet their basic needs, and already feel the impacts of the climate crisis - which the fashion industry fuels. As global citizens, we all have the power to take action.
Our founder Noorin Khamisani is currently a Lecturer at the University of Portsmouth and has organised a series of events for Fashion Revolution Week alongside Dr Lara Torres and a group of Fashion & Textiles students.
