Ada Zanditon is a UK-based designer who has received numerous awards and international recognition for her environmentally-friendly practices and artistic, architectural designs. While her clothes include some of the more wild designs we’re used to seeing at runway shows, most of Zanditon’s pieces are also practical and work for real people in the real world.
Zanditon works with environmentally-friendly fabrics like Fair Trade organic cotton, tencel and more. All of her dyes are free of AZOs, which are color synthetics that can turn into carcinogens and be absorbed by skin over time. Zanditon’s fabrics are sourced and manufactured right there in the UK, and her studio goes out of its way to form personal relationships with the small factories that produce their clothes. Most of the factories are local.
Zanditon is turning heads with more than her structured, elegant designs. The entire fashion world is taking note of her innovative environmentally-friendly tactics–her studio keeps to a zero-waste policy, and she reuses all her fabric scraps as quilting and padding. The studio sticks to high-efficiency lighting, recycled stationary and biodegradable cleaning products.
Even Zanditon recognizes it’s not always possible to be 100 percent green. Sometimes a environmentally-friendly alternative to a traditional technique can’t be found, and then she’s forced to make the most eco-friendly choice. Fortunately, things change fast in the fashion world. (That can be a good thing!) She engages in ongoing education not only to stay up to date with trending styles, but to learn about eco-friendly innovations that could enhance her green production practices.
Zanditon’s green technology line started off with a bang in 2008, when she produced an exclusive collection for Oxfam Boutiques. You can find Ada Zanditon’s clothes online through specialty boutiques like Juno&Jove and Palette.
