Hear Julie Gilhart’s Ethical Fashion Philosophy and How Small Brands Make a Difference


Julie Gilhart (that’s her fab Twitter icon above) has been working on promoting ethical, sustainable, thoughtful fashion for as long as I’ve been reporting on it. I’ve heard her speak several times, and it’s always a deep, thoughtful experience, which feels enriching in a way that other speakers don’t always get to with the more technical aspects of fashion and fabrics. Now you can hear what I mean. Check out her conversation with Fashion+ below:
