India: Vibhuti Vazirani
Created to fight the battle against fast fashion, new premium sustainable fashion brand ZAVI debuts their ready-to-wear collection of timeless wardrobe staples. Using the brand’s exclusive sustainable fabrics, ZAVI strives to provide conscious fashion that is relevant, desirable and affordable.
ZAVI was created and founded by Vibhuti Vazirani – but a label with a difference. Starting from scratch, with no real training or background in fashion, Vibhuti took onboard a journey of self-learning. With her business acumen, scientific mind, and deep passion of creativity, she researched the impact of the fashion industry on our health and environment. What she found disturbed her deeply and she took an oath that ZAVI would be pro-environmental and as close to a 100 percent sustainable as possible, using natural fibres and natural methods. She produces clothing from hemp, organic cotton, bamboo, peace silk, and recycled polyester. Using these eco-friendly and organic procedures, helps in limiting the harmful impact of garment production on the environment.
ZAVI is a brand that caters to a fashion and environmentally conscious people, by providing on-trend and quality organic clothing.
