Today, #TOGETHERBAND announced its newest ambassador, none other than fashion’s favourite Irishman, Richard Malone. The womenswear designer and Fashion East alumni join as an ambassador in aiming to achieve Goal 12 of the UN’s Global Goals, Responsible Production and Consumption. Since graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2014, Malone has been a champion of sustainability with his namesake label. From sourcing his fabric from a community of female weavers in Tamil Nadu, southern India, to strictly producing his collections in limited numbers, Malone is a sustainable knight in shining armour. Together Band’s campaign creates colourful bands using sustainable materials, making them by hand in Nepal from upcycled ocean plastic. With each band purchase, a whopping 1 Kg of plastic is removed from marine environments. Hats off to #TOGETHERBAND for picking a fantastic ambassador indeed.
