  • what impact she is creating through the work she does locally via her zero-waste fashion brand;
  • the importance of investing in the people you work with;

Key takeaways:

  • The fashion industry and system are designed in a way where people want to share their losses but not their profits.
  • The person who holds the money in the fashion industry holds the power.
  • Anyone who wears clothes is a stakeholder in the fashion industry.
