  • Ariel-Top-4-ecohabitude Annaborgia’s Farewell

    It has been a few months since I’ve posted on the blog. I want to apologize to all of you for that.  Like many ethical brands, I am involved in multiple projects and sometimes one takes priority over the other.  For the past several months, I have been devoting more time in creating The Kind Bride, a […]

  • 5 Years Of Fashion Revolution

    This month marks the 5th anniversary since the Rana Plaza building collapse in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The tragic loss of over a thousand garment workers shook the fashion industry hard, finally exposing the supply chain of how our clothes come to life, and at what cost.

  • Behind Annaborgia’s name

    On this International Women’s Day I feel like sharing a personal story. Today is certainly a day of celebration, but honoring women and their great impact and influence on my past and present it’s really a daily practice for me. Growing up in Italy, I was surrounded by a diversity of strong female personalities. My […]

  • End Of The Year Reflections

    Dear conscious fashionistas, the end of 2015 is just around the corner. Are you looking back at all you’ve accomplished this year? I can’t help but reflecting on Annaborgia’s first few months in business. I’ve learnt so much, mostly the hard way (isn’t it the fastest though?) Running a fashion label is definitely one of the […]
