Nea Wear Manifesto

This manifesto belongs to all those who want a positive change to take place in the fashion system. Wouldn't the world be a better place with a fair, equal system that empowers people well as workers and as customers? We aim to create a range of shared values with all players in the fashion industry but we can't do it alone. We need to stand together and we need YOU to join us on this journey.

1 – For us, you are not just a customer; you are your own person with your personality, your individuality, and your beautiful uniqueness. We want you to be a part of what we're doing and respect and understand your necessity to be you! We hope to build a community, to create a new type of connection between responsible, conscious humans. We want a real exchange of ideas and views via a direct relationship with our customers and we want to create a culture that transforms the way we consume fashion.

2 – Create awareness towards overconsumption - buy well, shop less. The choices you make can have a positive difference. We are guilty of purchasing items that have a short life span, that is unable to be put back into the supply chain or be recycled. We need to increase the level of consciousness about what and where we are buying from every day. Embrace the real way to live. We choose to use natural fibers because they are better for the environment, farmers, producers and finally, you the wearer.

3 – Every day be you Be comfortable in your body, be proud of who you are, be who you want to be in the world. You deserve to be respected and represented the way you want to be. Your strength is something to be celebrated and encouraged. Beauty is not one-dimensional.

4 - Be Just We stand for fair treatment and opportunity for all our brothers and sisters in this world and we want to ensure that whoever is involved in the process of creating NEA stands by this.

5 – We love what we do And we want to constantly improve and expand our limits. We take time to create something that is consciously viable, the lasts and most importantly something that you'll love.

6 – We have to slow down The fashion industry is one of the largest industrial polluters in the world. We are going to do our best to ensure our environmental footprint is the smallest it can be. We claim transparency, sustainability, and ethics and we need to spread the word about how we need to positivity impact and save our planet. Be aware, mindful and responsible.

9 – Strength in design Design is very powerful and we have plans to create the highest design into every element of NEA alongside creating something ethical, fair and beautiful.

30 April - Trikini Day

Yesterday was Dance Day. Today is Trikini Day. With all famous beaches around the world COVID-closed the only chance one gets to wear one's trikini is on a rainy day in a shopping trip to the Co-op....

It's such a shame that in our household its the hunter that goes shopping...

Alternatively, one might premier trikini at a NHS' Thursday clapping session.

29 April - NO HIGH HEELS

I repeat NO HIGH HEELS at home! for those who are not on speed dial on a fancyman's phone. Get over it. Having said that I have to admit that between 20 and 30 I was wearing highhills 24/7, including at home and when throwing the rubbish. But then I was living in downton Sofia surrounded by all the thugs of the organized and disorganized criminal structures post-communist Bulgaria has sprung. Thus, only when one is surrounded by pimps and thugs, one’s esthetic perspective might get displaced enough as to think that wearing highhills at home is a sensible look. So I wouldn't judge myself too harshly for then. It is strange to think about it now, but precisely those ex-sportsmen turn organized-thugs in the post-Eastern Block were the first to introduce the sports wear - until then reserved only for sports'events and halls - to the street. Strangely enough, because I was living amidst that folly I haven’t noticed the shift utnil Boycho, upon his returned from England in 1994, asked me “Why are all these men in our neighborhood wearing sportsanzung?” Which means that it took the West some quarter of a century to become as sporty and thuggy as the Eastern Bloc after the Fall of the Wall.

Sunny Blue Sofa - Both Sides 2020 Fashion

Remember this time last year? LAAF launched its Sandy Summer 2019 Fashion. It consisted of wearing old garments used to the point not to be good to be worn in town; but loved enough so not to be thrown away; hence moved to the Old Fisherman's Cabin and worn by the sea during long sandy summer days.

This April LAAF is launching its Sunny Blue Sofa - Both Sides - 2020 Fashion. It consist of wearing your pyjamas and house-deluxe garments both indoors and at your rare outings outdoors. And this is the best time to do it - introduce free style street pyjamas wearing - after a month of COVID19 quarantine when people are used of both : at home, seeing people in pyjamas 24/7; in the street, seeing people in uglish lycra sports gear 24/7.

Thus the introduction of free style street pyjamas wearing will softly and unnoticeable reign the streets as a dream merging into reality. And of course nightdresses too.

The Sunny Blue Sofa - Both Sides Fashion - is a relaxed rather naked sort of fashion. Hence, the nearly newborn naked element of the current uglish free style sport fashion will be perpetuated.The naked element will even be perfectioned as who wears bras or smalls under a pyjama or a nightdress?

Last but not least, just as last year's Sandy Summer 2019 Fashion, the best thing about Sunny Blue Sofa - Both Sides 2020 Fashion is that you don't have to buy anything. You already have all that you need.

Inspired by Phaedra, an excellent biker and pitchblackwardrobe goth, who suddenly "I am going soft..I've bought a bloody WHITE bloody dress...aaaarrrrggghh....😧. Now I just need somewhere to go actually bloody wear it given that no one is allowed to go anywhere at the moment...bugger!!"

The Sandy-Summer 2019 Look - is now de passé
