2019 brought many gifts, among them were a host of opportunities to do my sustainable fashion advocacy work. I did some speaking and a good amount of writing, which- while I’m grateful for any avenue to share about something so very important to me- 2020 will see less time on this pounding away on this keyboard. That said- Iet’s celebrate some of the good things that happened in sustainable fashion that I reported on this past year.

I kicked off 2019 off with an interview of ecofashion guru and sustainability expert Marci Zaroff (she did coin the term ecofashion, after all), featured in the January issue of Green Living Magazine. Zaroff, “2019 is the big tipping point year for sustainable fashion. You can look good, feel good and do good in the world. It is cool to be conscious now.” I could not agree more!

The Garment League

In July, I co-hosted the first ever Polyester Sustainable Fashion event, with Tricee Thomas, sponsored by The Garment League (TGL). This event featured a fashion show with local designers showcasing their sustainable fashion lines. It was an incredible night. I am already looking forward to the next one! PS- lookout for more from TGL this year... they've got some big surprises up their sleeves!
