We’re living in an interesting time, one that is both uncertain and exciting. When it comes to fashion, I don’t think there has been a moment that has shown more enthusiasm for a cause than now.

It’s invigorating to see designers and brands take a deeper look at their manufacturing, sourcing, environmental, and social impact and to make changes for the better.
