Taryn Hipwell puts the ‘multi’ back into multimedia! With a background in hair and makeup modelling and fashion design, and a passion for green living it makes sense that she’s the founder of Eco Divas TV, where she and her team work to green the fashion, film and cosmetics industries through video and online projects, while looking fabulous all the way, of course.
On my path to becoming a designer, I had a great distaste for all the toxic chemicals in fashion industry (as well as the hair and makeup products), that I created Eco Fashion designs waaaay before it became trendy. Now I educate about Eco Fashion at FIDM and Environmental Charter High School because it is my goal to get at least 5 aspiring designers to shift their course and create a sustainable company from the start.
