PHVLO is all about slow, season-less fashion and introduces women to the concept of a 25-hour day, meaning that you will feel like you have an extra hour in the day due to ease of their pieces both to style and wear. They have great transparency on their production process with the pieces designed in London and made by skilled workers that are paid a fair wage in Hong Kong.
The Founder Joanna Ho has designed the collection with some key elements in mind. Each piece has beautiful details and construction to make it flattering and elongating and all pieces are breathable to make them comfortable to wear. They are also machine washable, anti-pilling, anti-scent so perfect if you want to wear for a long time, from day-to-night and even for your workout.
When I looked through the collection on the night, there were so many pieces that had surprise features- jackets that were reversible, sleeves that could be zipped off, removable belts and a festival jacket that could be zipped off in half to create a shorter version. My favourite piece was the red rain repelling trench coat that had a removable belt which also serves as a cross body bag.
After browsing the collection, there was a discussion on “How to be a Good Influence” hosted by GRL PWR Founder Kirsti Hadley. PHVLO Founder Joanna was on the panel along with three other super inspirational women...
Joanna, Gina, Eunice and Daisy are all amazing examples of people disrupting things for the better and changing the world but what were their tips to help us make the difference too?
They spoke about how sometimes it can feel like you are a little fish in a big ocean and it’s hard to feel like you can make an impact but you really do. Choose some small things to do differently to start for instance Daisy recommended if you can’t face being vegan all the time, how about having 2 or 3 days a week where you eat no meat which will still help the environment. Small changes by everyone collectively can make a huge difference.
Gina spoke about how if you feel passionately about changing something- just go for it! She said she knew absolutely nothing about changing a law but decided to do it, threw herself in and learnt along the way. Passion and dedication to a cause is infectious.
Thanks so much for having me GRL PWR! Check out more about their events here.
