Bringing Nature Back into Fashion
From regenerative farms to wardrobe, can fashion become truly sustainable?
Writer, consultant and sustainability expert, Amy DuFault, has been promoting sustainability in fashion long before most others in the industry were even thinking about it. Having worked with numerous brands, she is well aware of the hurdles they face but also of the opportunities there are for fashion businesses to embed more environmental-friendly principles in their systems.
As sustainability and communications director for Botanical Colors and co-founder of South-Eastern New England Fibershed, she is in touch every day with experts who are developing ways to bring nature back into fashion. She works with brands to enable them to use fibers grown locally, through regenerative agriculture practices and dyed using natural resources. While many in the fashion industry are still wondering where to start, Amy is at the forefront of these exciting new developments.
During this interview, Amy shares with us her thoughts and experiences of working with producers and brands, as well as her vision on how we can work towards a cleaner, more beautiful fashion industry.
