Before taking a trip, being the type A planner I am, I do a good bit of research for each trip. I look through the temperatures each day, what we plan to do each day with a rough itinerary which will later inform my packing decisions. I read through blogs on the places were going to, instagram + yelp for dining choices, beautiful locations to get photos of, and ideas for activities. I also create a google map for each trip, so that I can visually map out the plans + see how long travel will take between destinations.
I am a big proponent for booking airbnbs over hotels, it feels more like home and theres so much more value in an airbnb. Research the area you’ll be staying in- what is nearby, is there a grocery in walking distance, activities, mass transit options available, will you need a rental car etc. I keep this itinerary with all the plans for each day in a note on my phone for easy access. The more informed you can be, the better your packing will be. And ultimately, the more relaxing the trip will be.

It is clear by now that fashion production and consumption as it existed until the 2013 Rana Plaza disaster is coming to an end. Over the last half decade there has been a proliferation of independent, local labels around the world. These brands may be locally accomplished and culturally rich, but internationally unknown and lacking sufficient funds to compete in the global marketplace.
At Fashion Forward, we believe that the exploration of the unknown, the widening of discourse, and the broad accessibility of free information is crucial to moving the fashion system forward. For these reasons, we have been working to create guides that feature the most conscious, impactful, and sustainable brands from different countries all around the world. Fueled by our mission to open the fashion system up to new and exciting initiatives, these resources fill a gap in the information available to consumers, allowing them to experience fashion through a new lens.
