The shift from fast fashion to sustainable fashion is already underway, thanks to brands such a Mode Minimal that is bringing variety to make sustainable fashion more fun. Mode Minimal by Akshitha Reddy is a Hyderabad-based clothing label that sells some dapper pieces for women. All their pieces are completely handmade and their top choice of fabrics are cotton and linen (we could just live in these materials all day).
They sell everything from tops, sundresses, pants to co-ord sets. You’d think summer only lasts a few weeks but not when you’re wearing their simple-yet-appealing pink co-ord set. It's made out of 100% cotton and makes a great outfit for brunch or a daytime poolside party. You can also unpack the spirit of a music festival in their elegant white puff sleeves top (our personal favourite) made with linen. If you’re looking for something to just slip into and feel breezy, check out their knee-length dresses, jumpsuits, and shorts too.
So if you’re to get closer to cultivating a more sustainable lifestyle, you could start by practising to buy sustainable clothes. Visit Mode Minimal’s Instagram page for more updates and to make a purchase. Their prices range from INR 2,000 - INR 5,000
