I have a dilemma.
And I’m interested to hear your opinions please!
I’ve been offered the opportunity to write a blog post for an online fashion and shoe website. They are creating content for some New Year’s Resolution posts and I have been approached to write a piece about my Make Do and Mend ethos and experiences, along with some tips.
It could potentially reach a few million people via the site’s social media and e-mail channels, so is a fantastic opportunity to get the Make Do and Mend message out there, to an audience who may never have considered it.
BUT does it mean that in some way I am endorsing this website, and the products that it sells? Do I want to be associated with fashion retailer, who sells mainstream (i.e. non-ethical) clothes and shoes, and is therefore inevitably is in some way embroiled in the whole fast fashion issue?
Do you see my dilemma?
I’m torn between it being a fabulous opportunity to introduce the concept of Making Do and Mending to a whole new (big!) audience, and being seen to be supporting or endorsing a huge multi-national consumption machine!
