EP. 30 F**k the system: How to transform fashion with Mairi Lowe

Published: Aug. 16, 2021, 3 a.m.

You'll often hear us talk about how the fashion system needs to change, but what exactly is a system? We're breaking down what a more equitable fashion landscape could look like with systems expert and Sustainable Fashion Scotland co-founder, Mairi Lowe. Listen to our conversation with Mairi to learn what the 'fashion system' is, how to fight the feeling of overwhelm when thinking about all that's wrong with fashion, and what we as individuals can do to make a difference. 

To learn more about the fashion system, we recommend watching the recording of this Fashion Revolution Week event hosted by Mairi.
