Ethical Fashion

As the fashion industry grows to accommodate a burgeoning community of bold new designers, so too does the call to reduce the impact fashion has on workers and the environment. Fast-fashion companies, specifically, are coming under growing scrutiny for the significant harm they pose to the planet. Innovative thinkers and business leaders are challenging us to rethink our relationship to fashion and imagine a more sustainable and ethical way to fill our closets.
