Kelly Hoppen designs debut fashion range for Earth Couture
Renowned interior designer Kelly Hoppen MBE is launching a home fashion collection for Earth Couture. The contemporary and versatile collection features stylish but casual everyday items in flattering silhouettes. Made with soft and stretchy organic fabrics, the items are coloured with natural dyes. All packaging is made from recycled materials and transport is by boat and road with carefully planned logistics to ensure minimum carbon footprint. With every purchase made from the collection, Earth Couture donate a natural plant-based mosquito coil to children in Africa to combat diseases such as malaria and aids. One coil gives 8-10 hours burning time and a child in Africa an uninterrupted night’s sleep. With items retailing between £55.00 to £225.00, the Home Fashion Collection will be available for purchase from the Earth Couture website and select stores throughout the UK from late Summer 2010.
