Episode Date
22) Orsola de Castro on Growing Fashion Revolution into a Global Movement by Inviting Everybody to Participate
31:52

How did Fashion Revolution, which has become a global movement, get started and grow to have the impact and reach it has today? What does it mean for us that people express interest in buying less and buying better, but often aren't doing so because of things like price, convenience, and style options? On this episode, Fashion Revolution's Co-Founder and Creative Director, Orsola de Castro, shares her wisdom with you.

 

HIGHLIGHTS:

 

[08:30] One of the greatest challenges the Fashion Revolution team faced when growing the movement.

[09:15] Orsola: "We all have a different vision of Fashion Revolution, and yet we all mattered."

[10:35] Orsola: "We kind of assumed #WhoMadeMyClothes would be a relatively easy question to answer, and yet no one could answer it at all. We realized there was a massive disconnection. 

[10:35] Why being bold but inclusive, while avoiding negative protesting, victimizing, naming and shaming, has been so important to Fashion Revolution. 

[13:25] Orsola: "We wanted people to be a part of the solution. Every single one of our wardrobes are in the fashion supply chain somewhere. Therefore, every morning when you choose the clothes you wear, you can be a part of that change."

[16:50] Orsola: "You don't have to have an interest in fashion to understand there's a massive impact in the clothes that we wear." 

[19:05] Kaméa: "An article said - millennials do have the heart to make more sustainable purchases, but often aren't doing so because of things like price, convenience, style options. What are your thoughts on that?"

[22:40] Kaméa: "How has Fashion Revolution been so successful at inspiring action, beyond just awareness?"

[24:35] A key decision Orsola has made as the Creative Director that's helped to elevate Fashion Revolution.

[26:00] Orsola's highest hopes for Fashion Revolution.

[10:55] Kestrel: “Often I won’t do things because I want them to be perfect, and it holds me back from actually getting over the hurdle of just starting things.” 

[14:15] Kaméa: “Let’s say you wanted to start something new today, and a voice is telling you it’s not good enough. How would you respond?”

[19:00] Kestrel’s thoughts on what we can do to keep conversations around discouraging issues engaging. 

[23:35] Kestrel: “It’s not a simple story. It’s really complicated – an intricate conversation.”

HIGHLIGHTS:

16) "Conscious Consumerism is a Lie" and Getting the Courage to Be Controversial with Alden Wicker
30:41

As part of 'speaking up for what we believe in,' how can we muster up the courage to say things that are different or that might go against the current? And, what needs to happen alongside conscious consumerism in order for us to accelerate positive change?

Alden Wicker, Editor-in-Chief of EcoCult.com, President of Ethical Writers & Creatives, and journalist with bylines in Racked, Quartz, Refinery29, Glamour, Inc Magazine, and more, shares her wisdom with you here.

[12:30] Kaméa: "If you were to start all over, what would you do differently to establish yourself more quickly?"

[14:20] Kaméa: "Do you get nervous before publishing something controversial, and what gives you the courage to do it anyway?"

[16:20] Alden: "There's too much emphasis being placed on guilting people into working harder at being sustainable."

[19:05] Alden: "There's this rampant perfectionism in the movement.

[19:15] Alden: "There's this idea that we can't demand the government tax or ban plastic bags unless we haven't ourselves used a plastic bag in a year, because that'd be hypocritical. No, I want them to tax and ban them. Because then, it'll be easier for me to not use a plastic bag and be the person I want to be."

[19:40] Alden on her viral article "Conscious Consumerism is a Lie" on Quartz.

[23:00] Alden: "It's really easy to become popular in this world by overpromising people, or holding yourself up as perfect."

[25:10] Alden: "I don't want people to feel guilty. I do want them to feel pissed."
