The Business of Slow Fashion
Many retailers complain that it is hard to find high quality, British made apparel, with low minimums and a fast turnaround. We specialize in short orders with low MOQs, minimising your risk in investment. All pieces are perfectly made with high craftmanship in mind, well selected fabrics per style and QC thoroughly checked.

We are an antithesis to fast, throw- away fashion, sourcing upcycled materials exclusively in the UK and where possible British made upcycled fabrics, for example our Delice Dress. Many fashion week designers will have materials made exclusively for their collections. There are enough fabrics out there in need of being saved from entering landfills, why we believe in upcycling.
“The World Bank estimates that 17 to 20 percent of industrial water pollution comes from textile dyeing and treatment. They’ve also identified 72 toxic chemicals in our water that solely originated from textile dyeing, 30 of which cannot be removed.” (takepart.com)
We think this is a pretty compelling reason why we choose to eco dye our silks by hand. For SS14 we’ve dyed using pomegranate and onion skins, producing a beautiful, unique print. Best of all, due to the nature of the dyeing process, each piece made from these prints slightly differs to the next, offering real exclusivity and individuality to every wearer. It’s almost like receiving a bespoke item, without the bespoke price tag. Can’t think of anything better than that!
As well as sourcing , we produce exclusively in London, UK. Keeping our carbon footprint as low as possible throughout the supply chain, is important to us. Sustainability not only runs through our business model but through the products themselves; manufacturing with high end finishing to promote durability and longevity.
Most of all we like to think we are part of the UK manufacturing regeneration, promoting a sustainable economy for all, from the ground up.
Elegance is rather timeless, a depiction of inner beauty seen on your person; a reflection of a happy mind, good heart and noble soul. Whether it is possible to capture these qualitites in a garment, we don’t know, but we have tried; incorporating simple silouhettes, flattering cuts and details that bring a subtle yet identifiable point of difference. For example, our signature pocket flap on the Saffron Shirt. Moreso, we like to think wearing a Kitty Ferreira garment will make you feel as such.
Being far removed from the tree-hugging eco warrior image, the Kitty Ferreira collection is ethically and sustainably made for today’s woman. A collection that can easily slot into your exisiting wardrobe, worn from boardroom-2-bar; with a tailored trouser or jeans; for your best friend’s wedding or lunch with friends. Sexiness for us, is about oozing self confidence in a quiet and understated way. We really have you in mind.
