Ethical Fashion Designer

I am a(n):

Reformed Fast Fashion & Consumer Junkie | Established Photographer | Stay at Home Entrepreneurial Mother | Founder of Gus Sloan | Slow Fashion Enthusiast | Body Acceptance Advocate | Mother of 2 | Potty Mouth | Modern Day Mentor | Modern Day Educator

I am the go-to for:

Diving deep into the world of ethical/sustainable fashion, supporting it as a fashion revolution and creating ways to make it more accessible to folks.

What I do:

I create and advocate for ethical and sustainable fashion in a world consumed by fast fashion. Being the small (but mighty) small fish in the big pond is my speciality and I strive every day to make ethical fashion more mainstream, more accessible and more desired. I love discussions around fashion, designing and owning a fashion brand.

Why me:

The fashion industry is a mess and needs a revolution - it's up to us to lead it. Ethical/Slow/Sustainable Fashion is the future and we need to be speaking more openly about it. We need to make it more accessible. We need it to change the world.

We are meant to express ourselves and show the world who we are, but it's not always the easiest journey. I'm here to provide guidance and encouragement through the process.

I am deeply involved, both professionally and personally, in helping more women find and fully embracing the truest version of their imperfect selves.

A little bit about myself:

I am the owner and designer of an ethical fashion brand that is deeply rooted in self-love and body positivity. I've been on a journey to self-love and acceptance for most of my life, so I understand the impact it has on one's everyday life. AND I understand the direct correlation between what we wear and how we feel. I design clothing to be kind and forgiving for the wearer - to bring forth comfort and confidence. We should feel good in our own skin and in the clothes we choose to wear. Compromise has no place here.

Great sessions and had a great time making the pants. The only suggestion I’d make is also having written instructions to go along with the video so I don’t have to find the exact point in the video to see what I might hav...
