Created for a life in motion

Created for a life in motion

You live, work, and play, all at the same time. You're busy, but wouldn't have it any other way. Recognizing that '9 to 5' can never define who you are, or what you do, Forward With Design's active-styled apparel and accessories are created to take you effortlessly from home to work to workout, or anywhere else.
Combining style, comfort, and convenience with technical fabrics and materials, our collections are designed for motion, but also to support, and even restore you when it's time to unwind. Guided by mindful thinking, we create each piece with a passionate commitment to people and planet, and a life that never stops.

Mindfully Created for People & Planet

Every Forward With Design product is a reflection of thoughtful choices. Mindful of our environmental footprint, we lean into using responsible production methods, materials, fabrics, and more. We try to raise the bar. We push ourselves relentlessly to meet our goals, and to improve wherever we can – for the planet, as well as for people, by favouring socially responsible practices as much as possible.

A few areas where we're making thoughtful choices:

● Plant-based and naturally derived ingredients
● Non-toxic formulas and materials
● Recyclable packaging and/or recycled packaging
● Environmentally friendly dyes and dyeing processes
● Fabrics made from recycled and repurposed materials

Materials, Fabrics & Technologies

As a Brand we're on a responsible journey, one that starts with a commitment to mindful choices so we can reduce our environmental impact. Although style is a given when developing new Forward With Design products, before any idea is allowed off the drawing board, we ask ourselves questions like, 'How sustainable can we make this product?' – so that ultimately we arrive at a finished product that is the best version of itself.

Future developments

A sustainable mindset is part of Forward With Design's DNA – and stitched into every seam. Over the next 2-3 years, we'll be working to minimize our carbon footprint through initiatives that include reducing waste, upcycling mono materials like cotton deadstock, and developing traceable garments.
We also plan to tackle using circular and sustainable materials. Long term, our journey will always focus on adopting new practices without compromising the future of our planet.

Diversity & Inclusivity

Forward With Design's mindful mantra, 'for people and planet,' is about a lot more than sustainability – it's part of a holistic approach that includes active support for a culture of diversity and inclusivity. From our internal teams, to the models we hire, to our campaigns and content development, we work with a broad range of talent that represents who we are, and who you are. We also promote size inclusivity by offering a plus-size women's assortment within our product range. We believe that Forward With Design is for you, no matter who you are.
