With climate change and pressing social issues knocking on the door of an increasingly interconnected planet, the world needs social entrepreneurs more than ever.
Tackling some of the world’s greatest challenges requires courage, and a true representative of that courage is Stacy Flynn, co-founder of the trailblazing textile technology start-up Evrnu and winner of the Fabric of Change challenge.
My interview with Stacy was originally published on Virgin and can be read here.
It was great to be surrounded by so many ethically minded people from the fashion industry earlier this week at the Ethical Fashion Forum’s Sustainable Fashion Drinks. We met to hear more about the exciting plans ahead for Mysource and share our experiences on what marked a 10 year anniversary for EFF. I left feeling encouraged by the curiosity and drive in the room, and only hope we can continue to foster such meeting points for the ethical fashion community.
I had the opportunity to interview Suzy Menkes, International Editor of Vogue, aka the world’s most famous journalist.
We talked about millennial engagement with sustainable fashion, in the setting of the Copenhagen Fashion summit.

The theme for this year’s Copenhagen Fashion Summit was responsible innovation. However what I actually came across during my time in Copenhagen at the world’s largest summit for sustainable fashion were responsible innovators; referring to those entrepreneurial individuals with an action plan for making sustainability the new normal. These responsible innovators and their startups got me really excited about the future of fashion. However, how can we grow a collaborative environment around sustainable fashion that allows influential corporates and responsible innovators to work together?
This week marks the beginning of Fashion Revolution Week, but how can you be a fashion revolutionary? For the first time, a global online event will take place which anyone in the world can take part in: the Fashion Revolution Wall.
This week we celebrated World Water Day. How concerned should we be with water scarcity and safety, especially when we consider the implications for our mental health? Can we better engage with climate change by understanding the impact of what we wear on water?
It seems an increasing amount of shoppers are feeling the frustration when it comes to trying to buy clothes with an ethical or environmental conscience. Fashion Revolution Day, on 24th April, is one day of the year when we have the opportunity to be part of a fashion revolution, and even start our own.
