SFW is the resource if you’re looking for fast fashion alternatives, with a focus on small European brands and independent labels. The newsletter’s primary mission is to highlight ways you can buy less but better, in order to create a wardrobe of clothes that suit you and your style. SFW focuses on womenswear and vintage.
Beyond style and shopping, the newsletter is also a source of inspiration to live a more mindful and creative life, drawing from my French-Brazilian multicultural background and own experience writing independently, living abroad and modelling since 2010. The newsletter was launched in May 2020. It’s 100% advertising free.
Who are you?
My name is Inês Fressynet and I’m a writer and content creator from Paris, France. I’m half French, half Brazilian, and I moved to London in 2014.
Before launching my newsletter, I was lifestyle editor at euronews., Europe’s leading news television network, for 3 years. I drove the sustainability agenda in this category and launched euronews. Living in 2017, a digital magazine dedicated to the latest eco-innovations in food, wellness, travel and fashion. Before that, I worked as a freelance travel and culture producer for France Télévisions and other television networks.
I have a Master’s degree in broadcast and digital journalism from City University, and a Bachelor degree in Modern Literature from the Sorbonne in Paris. Between 2012 and 2014, I also completed a 2-year academic program that focused on researching and writing about the Slow Journalism movement across the world. I’ve worked as a commercial model, in both Paris and London, since 2010 on the side.
I’ve written stories for Suitcase, BBC, Monocle, and Treehugger amongst others. I’ve produced fashion-related creative content in collaborations with brands such as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, AmaElla, Lacausa, Clo de Vila, Liliana Guerreiro and Bibico.
I was born in 1990, in Paris. I love thrifting, cheesy sci-fi movies, the nineties, fashion history books, film photography, feminist podcasts, working out, wearing power suits, tasting new vegan foods, hosting, Brazilian music, travelling, reading and drinking coffee amongst many other things.
