5 ways to master sustainable fashion without compromising on style, by Rebecca Corbin-Murray

Rebecca Corbin-Murray, stylist to the likes of Lily James, Naomie Harris and Jenna Coleman, is big on sustainable fashion. Fed up with the misconception that shopping ethically means knitting your own clothes or shapeless hemp sacks, she set about dressing her celebrity clientele in cruelty-free, eco-friendly brands. The stylist has also launched an Instagram account dedicated to profiling chic, yet sustainable labels, @the.ecoiste.
