Business Not as Usual. Laura Hanning, Faldan founder

Friday 3rd April, 2020

My business is

Ethical design (fashion and art): https://www.instagram.com/faldanbag/

What challenges I’m facing

I had to cancel a number of events around ethical design and sustainable living. A number of installations on 'Recycled Nature', which I presented at the London Fashion Week have also been postponed. 

What opportunities I see

I am taking time to understand what value I bring to community and economy at large. It’s a time to reassess whether what we do is relevant or needed. 

My top productivity tool

I signed up for some courses, since they start at 10am daily, it forces me to plan the day better. 

The new skill I'm learning

Graphic design.

The app I've discovered and use a lot

1stdibs.com and Behance.

I’m reading

John Carey 'A Little History of Poetry'.

What I'm doing to overcome anxiety

I am not anxious! I enjoy this slowdown.

I’m most looking forward to / planning ahead

A trip to Istanbul. 

What advise/tips would you share with others

Clear out your wardrobe and start a journey of conscious living. Owning only the things you need or truly love. Its so liberating to get rid of unnecessary.

Let’s keep in touch
