Christy Dawn aims to design and manufacture garments with greater care, to reduce the impact of fashion on the planet. The brand invests in projects to offset its greenhouse gas emissions and offer carbon-neutral shipping.
Christy Dawn uses a large proportion of sustainable materials such as organic cotton and linen, but also some polluting synthetic fibers such as nylon.
However, the designer brand makes sure to only use deadstock fabrics, textile scraps, and leftovers from major fashion houses that would otherwise go to landfill.
Today, the fashion industry has a catastrophic impact on the environment. The way most clothes are produced today isn't sustainable or ethical. It's important now more than ever to take massive action to reduce waste, pollution, and carbon emissions.
Christy Dawn follows a more inclusive and regenerative approach to clothing production. It uses discarded fabrics that other designers, fashion studios, and garment factories would normally send to landfills.
Christy Dawn produces many of its clothes in the United States and India. She works with the most talented seamstresses and pays a competitive wage and ensures health benefits.
However, the brand doesn't present any certification or state if audits are conducted to ensure ethical and sustainable production, good working conditions, social and labor standards, safety, and other important rights for workers in its supply chain.
Christy Dawn doesn't use any exotic animal skin, or hair, fur, angora. But she uses leather, wool, and silk to manufacture many of its clothing pieces.
These animal-derived materials are cruel and unethical. They also harm the environment by producing greenhouse gases and wastes. More sustainable alternatives exist.
Christy Dawn doesn't show any measurement of its water usage, pollution, or waste across its supply chain. It doesn't have any clear sustainability goals, science-based targets, or timeline to improve in the future either.
