Lydia Bolton is a sustainably-focused fashion designer that turns unwanted materials into custom-made womenswear clothing. A zero-waste focus is placed at the core of her craft - from sourcing the materials to packaging her garments. She also writes a ton of great educational blog posts on sustainable fashion and runs upskilling workshops that teach students how to mend and make their own clothes. Lydia founded her namesake brand in 2019 after taking a course at the Centre for Sustainable Fashion and learning in-depth about the huge amounts of garments and textiles sent to landfill each year. She has since been featured in Vogue as a "Girl on a Mission", in Euro News as a "Designer Fighting Waste" and has collaborated with brands like Reebok and Nicce on sustainably-centered projects. We spoke to her about all of this and more. If you’d like to see Lydia’s bespoke clothing or check out her blog, here’s a link to her website: https://www.lydiabolton.co.uk/
