THE-ACEY is a online boutique offering consciously created contemporary clothing. Holly Allenby, the founder of THE-ACEY, identified a need for a go to destination for clothing that combines both ethics and aesthetics. THE-ACEY work with brands that embody two simple qualities: integrity and innovation. They look for forward-thinking and inventive brands that are always searching for ways to improve. These must also be brands that consider, and actively work to reduce, their environmental and social impacts throughout the supply chain.
THE-ACEY offers a wide range of clothing and accessories from a number of different designers. Each designer has been carefully selected and profiled on the website so you can find out more about the brand before you buy (link here). Selected brands include Matt & Nat, Marina London, Beaumont Organic, Groceries Apparel and Blake London.
