TOLLY DOLLY POSH

SUSTAINABLE FASHION BLOGGER

• • •

Where she’s based: Currently travelling in Sardinia, Italy, but originally from Gloucestershire in the UK.

What she’s doing: A 16 year old ethical fashion blogger, who started her blog as a summer project at age 11 (!) “My mission is to inspire others to be more confident in themselves and what they wear, whether that be in terms of their physical appearance (becoming more comfortable in the real you) or in terms of the actual clothes that are in their wardrobes (becoming more aware of who made them and where they came from).”

Her turning point: “I watched the True Cost movie a few years ago and I knew from that moment on I was meant to be making a change. I think a lot of people who have watched it have come away feeling the same but haven’t always got a platform to go ahead and utilise. So I started focusing on the issues on my blog!”

What she’s excited about: Connecting with like-minded people to create a community that can really make a change.

Brands she loves: People Tree, Birdsong, Tribe of Lambs, Lost Shapes and Thought (Braintree): for more, check out Tolly’s own personal directory on her blog

Fun fact: Her real name is Tolmeia, after a “piggy-back plant”, and she loves TV shows. “Not necessarily fun, but if you know me personally then you’ll know I’m obsessed with TV shows like Community (my ultimate favourite).”
