Join us for Austin Fashion Initiative’s (AFI) monthly meetup at Austin’s newest co-working space: The Riveter where we’ll be featuring a panel for an in-conversation discussion on sustainability and innovation.

Sustainability is no longer a unique selling proposition, and many brands are incorporating sustainable practices as the status quo in their business models. Efforts to create a more sustainable supply chain are not the central, differentiating element to a brand story, but simply an underlying core value. This panel discussion will feature an in-depth conversation on building a sustainable value chain, and an inside look at Austin-based brands making an effort to positively impact the production of apparel and fashion products. We’re pleased to welcome Classic Childhood, Stitch Texas, SixChel and Miranda Bennett for an in-conversation discussion on building brands through sustainable practices.

She began her career in Hollywood, California, where she worked for major record labels such as Virgin Records, Interscope Records, EMI Music and Capitol Records.

Later, with her extensive experience in developing online fashion media, she continued the show independently and has successfully rebranded THE B-SPOT into Style Lush TV online fashion network. Now, with over eight professional years in online fashion media and trend forecasting, she continues to pioneer, maneuver and develop her industry.
