With the constant influx of fast fashion over the past decade, it’s easy to get sucked into a black hole of consumption—bombarded by flashy advertisements, low prices, and continuous new styles. Through my work over the past few years I’ve been exposed to—and seen the effects of—both a positive and negative supply chain amidst the fashion industry and the people who work within it. This year, I am making a conscious effort to really think about my purchases and invest in pieces that not only last, but are produced ethically and intentionally.
My favorite thing to discover amidst the ethical fashion industry? The people—innovators, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders—dedicated to making this scary subject a lot less daunting and a bit more beautiful.
