All images taken by author at London Fashion Week AW10

Drama, colour and detail, that's what the most fabulous ethical fashion accessories are about this season at London Fashion Week. Like this incredible tagua (vegetable ivory) and waste cattle bone necklace from Leju. We love a bit of tribal drama in our lives and appropriately enough the necklace is called Avatar. Oh and there are some very cute stuffed dogs from Christopher Raeburn off cuts too. We know how fashionistas like to have a miniature pooch popping out of their handbag, and we think Raeburn's military hounds are just the type we like!
Christopher Raeburn - cute stuffed dogs
Yes, here are the Raeburn pooches made from his reclaimed military fabric off cuts. Off the wall and fun, no reason why the hottest young designer of the moment can't do a nice sideline in stuffed toys! Watch this space for coverage of Christopher's stunning main AW10 collection.

Junky Styling - neckties
Oooh très elegant - we adored these collar neck ties from Junky Styling - the masters of deconstructing and reconstructing second hand clothing into unique and sexy creations. Junky Styling

Kayu - shell clutches
These pretty shell clutches are made by a women's cooperative in the Philippines from fishing industry waste. These are a brand new range from the Kayu label which is known for funky bamboo sunglasses. Kayu

Elvis + Kresse - firehose bags
The new Elvis + Kresse arts collection is a wonderful series of collaborations between the brilliant reused firehose designers and international artists. We particularly loved the prints by British artist Paul Morrison on the parachute silk linings of these holdalls. Elvis + Kresse

Leju - vegetable ivory jewellery
Yes Leju, our favourite tagua jewellers, have gone all theatrical and tribal this season, and we love it! They are embracing their Colombian roots, where the tagua jewellery is sourced and produced by local artisans. Leju

Michelle Lowe-Holder - off cut cuffs
Michelle Lowe-Holder is one of the designers being supported by the Centre For Sustainable Fashion at The London College of Fashion. She is currently being mentored through a two year programme that encourages young designers to move their work in more sustainable directions. We covet these dramatic wrist cuffs made from her fabrics off cuts. Centre For Sustainable Fashion

Pachacuti - fair trade panama hats
Pachacuti, as ever, brought some riotous colour to the Estethica show with their wonderful panama hats. We want to congratulate them on their fantastic reband and new World Fair Trade Organisation certification. Pachacuti

Sonya Kashmiri - luxurious leather
Ah the feel of Sonya Kashmiri's vegetable tanned leather accessories is one of the most tactile experiences a girl can have! We love the soft pale grey and beautiful tooled details. We are always impressed by the incredibly high quality of Sonya's designs, and we're saving the pennies until we have one of our own! Sonya Kashmiri
