How Downton's least likely sister became a fashion favourite
Laaura Carmichael once said that playing the dowdy Lady Edith in Downton Abbey was something of a gift.
“I think it must be so hard to start your career with everyone going on about how gorgeous you are,” she said in an interview with Love magazine back in 2013. “I probably end up with more confidence than anyone because when people meet me they say, 'Oh, you’re nowhere near as dowdy as we thought you were.’”

ECOALF was born in 2009. My idea was to create a fashion brand that is truly sustainable.
All studies showed that we are presently using five times more natural resources than the planet is able to auto-generate. We cannot live in this world as if we have another one to go when this one is ruined.
