Inspired by the romance and nostalgia of travel, the strange longing to be shipwrecked, desert island dreams, the irresistible idea of life lived away from the mainland and mainstream.
Holiday Romance is an environmentally conscious label, founded on principles of sustainability.
With the impact of fashion and textiles falling so heavily on our environment, we believe that environmental-accountability should always be at the point of creation.
We are very much committed to ensuring that the environmental impact of all of our products – and their production – is, at a minimum, carried out from a neutral-impact intention. We aim for their consumption to be mirrored by their production – with mindfulness at the core.
Your Holiday Romance comes to you with fairness and love, as well as quality. We believe in authenticity, meaning and we celebrate transparency.
Taking the time to get to know the people who make our goods, we are proud knowing that our manufacturing team maintains a high standard of ethics and environmental responsibility.
We believe the best business practise is done face to face which is why we chose to keep our production close to home and have as much real face to face communication with the people making our clothes as possible. We work with a small, family run business in Porto headed by women and predominantly staffed by skilled women fabricators too. Together they have many years’ experience crafting highly finished artisanal-standard garments on a batch production level which means we can work with them closely and personally on every item. It is important to us that they are connected to the brand and part of the whole process – this gives our workers a sense of empowerment and pride in their work.
On this tight scale we are able to share our moral values and weave them together with those of our factories.
Trends in fashion may come and go, but taking care and being mindful of the environment is one trend that defies all seasons.
We stay clear of transient trends and are proud to be part of the slow fashion movement, designing and make clothing that has design integrity, clothing that is designed and created to be worn for season after season, holiday after holiday.
We believe that style and substance can coexist. We aim to raise awareness, and help our consumers make informed – and ultimately – better choices. Holiday Romance gives back a portion of proceeds directly to environmental organizations who help to protect our oceans.
Cherish the memories of summers gone by in timeless style and join us in taking action to help protect our world.
