Hugely successful brand ASOS, with the name As Seen On Screen, chosen in order to try to show the brand's intention to supply the public with outfits similar to the styles of celebrities.

“Patch” is the first eco-friendly and ultra-light biodegradable paper watch in the world, created by Altanus.
Parisian womenswear brand ‘Les Fees De Bengale’ prides itself on its use of organic Fairtrade cottons and silks; a product of their partnerships with cooperatives in the south of India and Bombay. It recently launched a lingerie line featuring luxurious chiffons, ribbon, beading and lace.
