We've all heard of slow food, but have you heard of slow fashion? My Modern Closet is heading that conversation here in Vancouver and we are excited to partner with them for our Closet Cleanout series. (Still spots left! Sign up here -link). Learn more about the gal behind it all below:
Describe yourself in three words.
Curious, happy (cliche, but I am), full of energy. (which is technically 3 words but hey).
What is the story behind My Modern Closet?
My Modern Closet came from organizing clothing swaps with my girlfriends, to working in retail and seeing what consumption looks like first hand, to realizing hey, I can make a difference here. Just because I'm one person, doesn't mean I can't be a catalyst for positive change.
What is something you are working on right now?
Being gentle with myself; part of what comes with starting a business is the self doubt, perfectionism, and non-stop working hours. I am working on celebrating all the tiny wins, and enjoying the process of growing.
What is something you are proud of?
I'm proud of My Modern Closet, that I actually took the leap and went for it.
The best advice you could give someone is advice on....
Authenticity is magic.
What are you hoping will be the biggest takeaway from this series?
Education. I strongly believe in the power of education and that if people know their power as consumers, we can all work toward positive change.
And lastly, what is your favourite item of clothing & why?
I'm going to have to go with my black felt hat, it makes my everyday jeans and white t-shirt look fashionable.
