Eco-Conscious Meets Body-Conscious

Claire Farwell London is a line of  body conscious clothes that makes all of their styles with vegan materials in the USA. Claire is a former model from England who began her career as a model and actress. She graced the pages of countless fashion magazines, appeared in movies and well known TV commercials across the globe. Her body, fit and feminine, helped her secure work time and time again, with her curves being one of her most marketable assets. In 2009 that all came crashing down.

After a routine first mammogram, Claire learned that she had breast cancer. Claire underwent 5 grueling surgeries to rid her body of the cancer and give her a chance at continuing her life as a wife, mother and career woman. Her only option was to have a mastectomy, and she made the choice to have a double mastectomy.

Claire then bravely documented her reconstruction for the Daily Mail, one of those photos being this gorgeous shot;

Today, the former fashion model – who lived and worked with Naomi Campbell in Paris in the 80s – runs her own fashion label while juggling life as a mother and wife.  She graced campaigns alongside Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell for Gianfranco Ferrè, Nivea and Speedo, and appeared in French Elle and Vogue, and now she’s an advocate for cruelty-free fashion.

Claire’s designs have a decided confidence about them, and maybe part of that is the configuration.  These dresses hold you in like a good pair of spanx! We haven’t such a great tummy tuck since our days of wearing Hervé Leger dresses.  If you aren’t familiar with Leger, he’s known for bandage tight, sexy red-carpet ready dresses that suck you in tighter than a hug from a monkey!

Farwell calls her designs “classy” “cheeky” and fashion “with a British accent,” simply put: these are the right clothes to show off your curves.

I wore a piece recently for my About Eco Series (see below)
