Each Wednesday we interview women in our community about innovation and what drives them to make a difference in their industries everyday!
Why is innovation important to you?
For me, innovation within the fashion industry is long overdue. I want to see more diversity and inclusivity in model choices and in options for customers. I also want to see changes in how we consume fashion and a move away from fast fashion for the sake of our planet.
What drives you to make a difference?
Seeing my customers looking confident and fabulous in one of my dresses, regardless of their dress size, body type or gender, and the fact that they, in turn, will help someone else become more confident to be who they are is what keeps driving me to make a difference.
Do you have any advice for getting more women into the innovation ecosystem?
Dream out loud! The world of start-ups and innovation isn’t just about tech businesses and aps. If you have a kick ass idea, talk about it, and find your local start up community. There is so much guidance and help available to help you get started. You won’t regret it.
