According to the Guardian, a traditional UK based newspaper, Charles Prince of Wales will sponsor a sustainable fashion collection with designers Vin + Omi. This isn’t the first time His Royal Highness has championed positive fashion projects. Last year Prince Charles met with London’s biggest sustainability designers during London Fashion Week. He met with designers Bethany Williams, Mother of Pearl and Teatum Jones discussing material innovation, the circular economy, and community.
This season the royal prince goes one step further collaborating on designs with fashion brand Vin + Omi. Apparently Prince Charles met with the designers over tea where the trio discussed making dresses out of nettles. The prince mentioned he had “lots of those at Highgrove”. And purportedly the upcoming Vin + Omi collection will include a nettle textile sourced from the prince’s Highgrove estate.
The designs are set to be shown on the runway at London Fashion Week later this month. Stay tuned.
