Ethical fashion’s newest face is giving 90% of its profits to charitable causes
Launched in February, London-based contemporary womenswear label, Ninety Percent, is unlike any other fashion brand. Their concept is about more than just the product they’re selling. It’s giving back. Giving back 90% of all distributed profits to charity and the people who helped make the collection. And that’s not all, Ninety Percent are also asking you to decide where their money goes.
Co-founded by Shafiq Hassan and Para Hamilton, with Ben Matthews as Creative Director, Ninety Percent is a powerhouse, dedicated to making ethical shopping simpler.
The fashion and textile industry remains a dirty business and many brands are yet to reveal the details of their supply chains, but consumers are turning up the heat. It’s 2018 and they want to know who makes their clothes and how, and where fabrics are coming from.
Ninety Percent has heard them. Women now have the option to #DressBetter and support those making it possible. Oozing relaxed femininity, the collection is low maintenance but elegant, with close-fit jersey staples, sumptuous knits, and prices ranging from £30 to £350.
For Ninety Percent, the materials and manufacturing process is no secret. All are carefully chosen and sourced only from industry best-practice suppliers, in countries such as Bangladesh and Turkey.
They say: “Sustainability is an endeavour that’s high on our agenda; we’ll share our progress and encourage your feedback as we start this journey together.”
