Fashion industry players — like big brands and their billionaire owners — have to be held accountable for their impact on our environment and on the people involved with making their clothes.
Independent journalists can play a crucial role in this accountability, since they can provide a critical outsider’s look on what’s happening in the industry, such as ascertaining if a fashion brand’s sustainability claims are legitimate or not. And it’s also a role that comes with a lot of responsibility.
One of the sustainable fashion journalists that both Stella and I have immense respect for is Sophie Benson. If you’re subscribed to our weekly newsletter, The Conscious Edit, you know that I often share articles written by Sophie in those Saturday emails. So it’s exciting to have her on the show this week.
In this episode, Stella is interviewing Sophie to discuss her journey and her insights as a journalist in the sustainable fashion space. For more on sustainable fashion journalism as a career path, check out Sophie’s Conscious Career Chat on Conscious Fashion Collective.
