How can we cultivate our authentic personal style in a trend-focused, overconsumption-driven world? What would it mean to truly democratize fashion — as in not the fast fashion co-opted use of the term, but genuine style democracy?
And how can fashion move beyond using diversity as a buzzword to create a holistically inclusive and intersectional sustainable fashion future?
In this episode, Stella Hertantyo is interviewing ethical stylist Natalie Shehata to explore all of these questions and more.
(P.S. Stella also interviewed Natalie for a piece on Conscious Fashion Collective about how to become a sustainable stylist!)
