We'd like you to have a very un-black Friday. This week we are unpacking a bunch of "Last Chance" colours and styles we've had squirrelled away.
If you know us, you know that our motto is less not more. We design classic styles and colours that never go out of style, and aren't dictated by season.
Our Mandy Empire (above) is a case in point. This was one of our original styles, but could have come out this year! It's reversible back to front for two different styles in one.
Something Old Something New...a not-to-be-missed sale!
All this week (November 21-27) we will be selling these "Last Chance" favourites at 20-40-60 % off! We will also be putting one surprise new item per day on sale in the store. So come on down to find some of your favourite styles from years past, and pick up one of our new styles for a great price, just in time for Christmas.
Along with the Mandy Empire (shown above), below are just some of the styles that we have dug out to offer to you!
The Alicia Top was one of our all time favourite styles, along with our classic Flow Pants, and the Mai Lin (below).
20-40-60% off in past season colours of staple styles!

Well our October's contest winner is the handsome and talented
Martin Gregg! Martin is a Scottish filmmaker working in Vancouver who loves our men's clothing.
Martin had this to say about our clothing:
He's crazy about our men's organic cotton and bamboo t-shirts. He loves Movement so much he bought a t-shirt to send to his brother in Scotland.He loves the navy mix colour and finds the quality of the fabric outstanding.
Martin is not alone in his love for our mens clothing. Another customer -Skilaaw Stewart-Burton- left this Google Review:
"I've never worn such comfortable clothes! This is the only spot in Vancouver B.C. where I could find eco-friendly clothing for men. To all the conscious dudes out there, I highly recommend their t-shirts and pants."
Have you ever spent money on a Halloween costume only to never wear it again? Here's a trick; this Halloween, why not spend the money on some great clothing that will be a treat to wear year round?
Here are a few eco halloween ideas for women
Black cat: Pair our black Simple Tights (or any black pants) with the black Belinda Ballet (or any black top). Pin on a tail, get some cat ears, and you are good to go, and are comfortable enough to tromp through the streets with your children, or dance it up at a Halloween party.
One of our customers Jana Tarassova a herbologist who used to be a model in Moscow, is modeling her version of the witch with a black Joni Dress, and a bright Orange Sonia Wrap.
Fairy: forest green , pink or white Simple Tights , Sierra Side Pocket, and your own fairy wings ( and pixie dust).
Pirate Wench: for a pirate wench the Alicia top is perfect! Then pair with a black/ white/ rust skirt, an eye patch and a kerchief on the head, and maybe a swashbuckling sword and some knee high boots.
Angel: grab some of our pure white tops and bottoms, just add a halo and some wings. Enjoy your tops and bottoms year round.
Eco Halloween Ideas for Men
Pirate: men can wear our black Gordo Pants and a T-shirt and then all they need is an eye patch and a pirate hat ( and sabre of course!).
For your little ones...
Come by our stores on Bowen or In Vancouver on Halloween! We will be giving out safe yummy goodies for all the little witches, wizards, ghosts and goblins out there!
If you are in a last minute rush, don't hesitate to contact us with a colour or size you need, and we will find it for you so you can just quickly pop by and finish your costume quickly and easily.

This year, we are trying something new for our clients that can't make it to Bowen Island. Come to our store on 4th any time between 9-5pm, where our staff will be available to help style any of your existing Movement wardrobe, or take the time to help find exact colours or styles for any of our new items.
If you just aren't sure how many ways a piece can be worn, or were curious if you could extend your wardrobe by adding a single other skirt, dress or top in a different colour, we will have extra staff on that day to take as much time as you want to really style yourself a new look!
Light refreshments and loads of fun!
WHEN: Saturday November 5th 10-7pm
Our September winner is Amy Ku! Zen pharmacist, yoga teacher, and all around lovely person Amy loves Movement Global because the simple modular styles make it easy to get dressed in the morning. She also loves that we are hundred mile fashion, locally designed and sewn right in Vancouver BC.
She had this to say on Twitter:
Amy looks amazing above in our chocolate Simple Tights, and navy Margarita Wrap. And equally comfortable and stylish in our Sierra Side Pocket and Vivian Cardigan in palest pink, and New Skinny in charcoal below.
Thanks Amy Ku! It's customer's like you that keep us trying our best to create sustainable clothes that allow you to buy less, keep it longer, and wear it more ways.
We hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving weekend. Thank you so much for your ongoing support!
There is still time to enter October's contest. Click here for instructions and regulations now.
Last month's Give Away winner is the gorgeous Stephanie van Willigenberg. Stephanie is a math professor at UBC, who loves the versatility and endless combinations of our modular bamboo clothes, and especially loves them for travelling! ( a frequent theme with our clothing)
Stephanie gave us 5 stars in her Google Plus review saying:
Movement Global is perfect. I love the comfy bamboo that is also super chic, and always reversible...either the colours or the style - 2 pieces for one! When I gave a high profile presentation at a conference in April I got many compliments on my dress, which came out my bag uncrushed and good to go. Who knew you could do week-long business trips with hand luggage...thanks to the clothing's versatility. Also the shop assistants are very solicitous (but never pushy) and Sigrun in particular is awesome with honest advice!
Thank you Stephanie! Our loyal customers are the reason why we have enjoyed our business so much these past 11 years!
Get in on the action!

Come join us this Thursday September 15, from 5-9pm for a Fashion on Fourth celebration.
We will be breaking out the wine and cheese and fashion, and showing off our huge new store re-do! We had a complete store makeover done by Jessica Elliot in early September to energize our Vancouver shop, and make it easier to showcase all of our modular styles.
We have had so many positive comments about our new look, and all of our staff love it too!
If you have ever tried to run a store with all jersey/soft clothing then you know it's so easy to get stuck in a world of stacked folded piles! Jessica did an amazing job getting our clothes out of piles, and onto hangers and displayed so that our customers can really see and find our clothes.
Come out and celebrate with us, and check out our new look!
It's hard to believe! It's been 2 years since we opened our doors in one of our favourite neighbourhoods in Kitsilano Vancouver.
Come celebrate with us!
We are having a party at our store on 4th avenue, this Saturday August 20th from 1-7 pm, and we want you to come join us :)
Wine and cheese: what's a party without a little refreshment? We will be hosting with a glass of vino, and some of our favourite cheeses. Non alcoholic beverages will also be available.
Amazing raffles and prizes: there will be hundreds of dollars in in-store credits to go towards a purchase of your choice.
