In this episode, we talk about the sustainable fashion movement.
Fashion is a three trillion dollar industry that affects virtually every person on the planet. Today, the long-term sustainability of the fashion industry is under significant threat from a wide range of social, human rights, environmental and commercial governance factors.
In this episode of The Inspiring Capital Podcast, Taryn Hipwell and I talk about the sustainable fashion movement. Taryn is the founder of Beyond the Label, a thought leader, and consumer engagement specialist in the realm of sustainable fashion. Beyond the Label (BtL) started as a partnership with TEDxLA to educate west coasters about the true health, social, and environmental cost of their fashion purchases. Taryn is the Arts/Fashion Chair for UN WOMEN-USNC LA (United Nations) and an Advisory Board Member for Fashion Revolution USA.
