What does your commitment to being green look like?
It’s first of all a way of life and the way I was raised from a young age. As a stylist and entrepreneur, my work has a timeless style that can be worn from generation to generation with good quality fabric that doesn’t wear out. I source all of my materials myself and work with the same factory, with whom I have a trusting relationship. Prior to beginning production, we go on site with the collection manager and the pattern maker to explain the collection and maintain a shared, trusting, face-to face relationship. I only work with fabrics and supplies from the European Union.
What challenges do you face?
We are working on a traceability guide that will help us understand how responsible our manufacturers are and go all the way up the chain.
What are your plans for the future?
Do better but not more. Particularly by using materials that we have already purchased in order to recycle them. In addition to being about style and quality, purchasing our collections is also an ethical commitment.
