In the final episode of the Crossover Moments mini series, Kim reflects on the key themes that emerged throughout the series. What were the beliefs guests held prior to their “crossover moment”? Why did they decide to let go of these beliefs? What did they replace them with?   Her personal experience, and the one seemingly echoed by many of the individuals participating in the Crossover Moments series, is that constraints are a far more powerful driver of behaviour than intention.

Taking inspiration from Ibram X. Kendi’s book, ‘How to be an Anti-Racist’, Kim explains why we need to start a brand new conversation around sustainable fashion and, to this end, offers some new definitions for terms commonly used in the sector. Indeed, part of shifting the mindsets and beliefs that underpin our current approach to sustainability  is creating a new vocabulary, a new language for talking about our sustainability woes.


This episode is part of the ‘Crossover Moments’ miniseries, where we explore key moments of personal transformation that led people to question and ultimately reject conventional approaches to sustainable fashion.
