Fashion tricks for 2021? The BBC’s weekly The Boss series profiles different business leaders from around the world. This week we speak to Rwandan fashion designer Joselyne Umutoniwase. In 2010, Joselyne Umutoniwase took a bold decision. She had been working as a film editor for five years but decided to follow her dream of becoming a fashion designer. She made her first fashion collection and when she travelled from her home in Rwanda to Germany for a film scholarship, she took two suitcases stuffed with tops, skirts and dresses.
Made from recycled suede leather and tyres, thus avoiding the contamination produced from burning these materials, this summer offering has been made by hand in Menorca, emphasising the Mediterranean spirit and sense of community that both brands share. Its particular cut, stitching and assembly make each sandal a unique piece of footwear that offers a new opportunity to an existing material. The reuse of garments or materials to give them a new life is one of the initiatives that Mango has implemented as part of its commitment to the environment and to improving the industry’s supply chain. Last April, the brand launched its first capsule collection based on the circular economy, featuring recycled fibres obtained from over 32 tonnes of clothing collected from stores via the Second Chances project.
Probably the most important factor to getting the overall look right is the colour of your socks. The aim of the game here is to seamlessly pull together your top and bottom half, and to match them harmoniously with your socks. It is always advisable to try and match any smart formal socks to the colour of your trousers, but try not to match them exactly. It is often better to let people see that they are a different colour to the trouser, but one that is within a similar spectrum. Bold and vibrant colours should always be reserved for casual wear and it can be great fun to contrast the colours with everything else you are wearing. However, if you are not feeling quite so brave then always work on matching them to the top half of your outfit, such as picking out the colour in your shirt as opposed to matching them with trousers as is the case for sprat formal socks.

Many times I have been asked where my organic and eco friendly clothing is made. When my answer includes places like China, Bangladesh and, India, the response I often get is negative and I can certainly understand. Most people involved in the environmental movement prefer to “buy local” either to reduce the impacts resulting from transport or avoid supporting countries with less then ideal human rights records. However, it is my opinion that this view, although based on a desire to create positive change, is not the path we should choose and following are my reasons.
Hobo bags first appeared on the fashion circuit during 1930s and since then millions of women around the world have become fans of their classic, versatile and functional design. The first ever known Hobo handbag to be sold was in 1936, and was called “Gilda Hobo Bag”. The bags are slouchy and crescent shaped, usually large sized. Hobo bags have been always known for their practical design and functionality. Most of them have several internal pockets where many important documents can be stored properly. Sometimes the pockets are even large enough to hold netbooks and laptops. The deeper internal pockets secure the bag from possible theft. These bags can be used as stylish laptop bags, shopping bags or diaper bags, the choice is yours! A hobo handbag usually comes with a wide strap which is adjustable, supportive and comfortable.
