This is part one of a conversation between three manufacturers and an activist.
On the manufacturing side, I’m joined by Jay Shroff of Fashion Panda – an India-based manufacturer of timeless loungewear and womenswear apparel, Amrin Sachathep of Atlantic Mills – a vertically integrated denim manufacturer primarily based in Thailand, and Suzanne Vétillart CEO of Boma jewelry. Boma also has its factory in Thailand. They produce for their own brand as well as for larger retailers.
On the activist side, I’m joined by Kate, the educator and activist behind Sustainable Outfits. Sustainable Outfits is a blog, Instagram account, and beyond.
We cover a big question: what kind of information would Suzanne, Jay, and Amrin like to see Kate looking at when educating the public about the fashion industry?
Why did MAS sign-up for science-based targets? What are their challenges? What kind of support is needed from brands and retailers?
