SUSTAINABILITY

Historically, the fashion industry disposes of unused or surplus fabrics by sending them to be incinerated, or worse, to landfill sites.

From day one, I decided that if there was to be another fashion brand in the world, then every FlyByNight piece should put sustainability and sensitivities first.

Working with vintage and dead-stock designer fabrics that can be in short-supply, has become an integral part of my design process, often determining the final look and style of each piece.

Fabrics rescued in larger quantities are given a new lease of life as FlyByNight dresses & FlyByNight blouses.

BLOUSE CROWNS


Smaller off-cuts and leftovers are reimagined into headbands, or as I like to call them ‘Blouse Crowns’ and more recently, pocket squares.

Anything else is recycled into wall-insulation for housing projects, so not a scrap goes to waste.

COLLECTIONS


For FlyByNight to be fully sustainable it has meant I’ve had to break a few of the fashion fundamentals.

Every piece of vintage and deadstock fabric is rescued from the most unexpected places, so it’s simply not practical to follow the big brand trend of ‘seasonal collections’.

Instead, at FlyByNight, I like to create mini collections. Based on the fabrics I find, and what inspires me at the time ‘a collection’ can vary from 10-15 pieces.

This collection was handmade using dupioni silk from a handful of London film studios. Where possible, I try to reflect the story in the accompanying label, so you can be sure that each FlyByNight piece is entirely unique.

For information on forthcoming collections, and PR opportunities, please do reach out.

PR


Sometimes, I’m lucky enough to have my work featured online and in magazines, it makes me feel like a kid in a candy shop.
