The coat incorporates a timeless, regal pleated waist and falls to the knee. The feeling of its first wear will endure throughout the years. Not only is this garment unique, it is also responsible and sustainable fashion.

What will the world look like in 20 or 30 years? Will people continue to wear disposable clothing? (The average life span of a garment is 3 years.) Will fast fashion companies exist? Will the fashion industry continue to be the #2 polluter in the world? These are the questions being asked in the fashion industry right now. Not only are fashion companies wasting millions of pounds of unsold garments each year, it is polluting the world and exploiting labor to create the textiles and garments.
