09 Apr so608 Recycle: Ethical Fashion Pioneer Eileen Fisher on Working from Home + More (Plus, Making Masks)
This week, we’re bringing back one of our most popular episodes of all time with one of the ethical fashion movement’s best-loved pioneers. Her thoughts on working from and her frankness about building a business during life’s challenges are especially relevant right now, as is her participation in face mask-making efforts in her home state of New York.
Originally shared in the fall of 2018, this conversation reveals how she made comfortable women’s apparel not only stylish and sought after, but also mainstream – you’ll find her multi-million dollar company’s clothing in department stores around the country and in some 56 shops in the U.S., Canada and the UK. That’s quite a journey from her start in the 1980’s, when she invested a few hundred bucks to present her first collection and immediately won attention with her clean-lined, easy-to-wear designs. Today, this pioneering female founder heads up a company that’s not only become a certified B Corp, used non-traditional models in its ads and incorporated organic cotton, but has also implemented numerous social initiatives and programs and vowed to use only eco-positive textiles by the year 2020.
Meet this week’s guest, Eileen Fisher, Founder of Eileen Fisher.
