M&S wins sustainable fashion award

Marks and Spencer has been crowned as one of the sustainable fashion champions of 2013 by the British Fashion Council.

The 2013 Sustainable City Awards, which took place at London’s Mansion House last night (March 19), were organised by the City of London Corporation and recognise sustainable business across a variety of categories from fashion to food to housing.

This was the first year that the BFC had partnered with the awards to introduce a fashion category.

As well as M&S, millinery company Pachacuti took the award for best independent fashion designer.

Caroline Rush, chief executive of the British Fashion Council, said: “Fashion is full of possibilities and as an industry we are full of creativity; this makes fashion a powerful tool in ensuring sustainability is at the core of all business practice.”
