“Fashion, as most people know, is about to be transformed and this is great news. The ethical fashion movement is growing and the future is now. It is more than urgent to promote sustainable fashion and conscious consumption, in a society used to what is immediate. Our goal is to shed light to those who make sustainable and ethical fashion in Latin America, but also to go a little further. We seek to educate consumers to understand their true role: the protagonists. It is the consumer who has the power to change and tell a new story about fashion. The consumer is responsible for its choices, just as brands must be transparent in their processes.” Rodrigo
“Today there is an urgent need for education of the general public
to develop the concept of conscious consumption.
The consumer must be aware of the influence of media.
The consumer has the real power. The power of demand.
The market only seeks to respond to the demand.”
