The minimalistic and sustainable brand Doo.Bla.Vey caught my eye some time ago when they were doing their Kickstarter project, but I didn’t look into the brand until much later on. Similarly to Honest Rosie, a brand which I wrote last about, Doo.Bla.Vey is rocking minimalist principles trying to reduce how much women are buying and dumping fashion. Their vision is to “design multi functional and purposeful clothing toward a minimal, longer lasting wardrobe”. The founder, designer Jiayin Zheng, has so far only designed one dress – the W dress, but styling one dress in 14 ways seems to be so promising I am excited to see what else she will bring in the future!
Doo.Bla.Vey wants to do things ethically and they source their fabrics from surplus vendors and manufacture garments in Taiwanese factories that offer fair wages, good working conditions and skills training for employees.
I am really looking forward to seeing more from this brand, not only for what they design but to see information on their sustainable practices as well! At least they want to spread the message of reducing the mass consumption which is great! I would also like to see designs with less open back for women who would like such a choice. Check their website here and their great Instagram page here. All of the images are from those two sites.

Minimalism and capsule wardrobes have been a trendy topic for quite some time now and although, I don’t really want to restrict my wardrobe by a number I do like to follow some of the principles such as wearing garments more than once #30wears. For many, however, it seems to be difficult to make a capsule collection no matter how much they would like to. People don’t have the time or know how to curate items that would work together or find garments that would last the test of time. If you recognised yourself here, or just became interested then read forward about Honest Rosie. And if you don’t know what a capsule wardrobe is you should check the Honest Rosie blog for an explanation.
Honest Rosie is a brand that has readily curated a 6 piece capsule collection for you. All the pieces work well together and they are so carefully designed that with just 6 pieces you are able to create 30 outfits! Sounds impossible, but the pictures are here to prove.
In addition, Honest Rosie is trying to run everything sustainably and ethically. They are big advocates for fair labour showing videos of the women who make the garments, pay fair wages and raise awareness about environmental issues and working conditions. The garments are made out of pre-consumer, upcycled fabrics.
The collection includes a blue vest blazer, a white shirt tunic, a white jumper, a blue button-down blouse, a light blue skirt and a dress in one and a pair of light blue trousers. So most of the garments are versatile and can be worn in many ways, which is absolutely amazing! The colours work well together and if you don’t want to buy the whole collection you can buy just one item that will definitely complement your own wardrobe. I hope to see in future that they will bring out some other colour variations as well!
When I heard about the brand they had just finished their Kickstarter campaign and earned much more than they were aiming to. With such a great idea I am not surprised! At the moment they are in the process of manufacturing the garments and I hope they will soon be available for sale! They are definitely striving for transparency and I wish they will share their location and how they supply their materials.
