Kathleen Talbot: “We want to prove that sustainable clothing can still be fashionable, fun, and even irreverent”
As VP of sustainability and operations at LA based brand Reformation, Kathleen Talbot is leading their efforts of trying to “clean up” the industry by introducing fashion with a much lower—and precisely calculated—environmental impact.
“There’s a growing conversation about the impact that fashion has on the environment and on people around the world. Sustainable fashion is quickly going from niche to best practice, and I feel really optimistic about the future we’ll create together. As a sustainable, mission-driven brand, Reformation is embracing the challenge to engage in this movement, and keep pushing for transformational changes in how we make clothes.
Fashion is the third-largest polluting industry in the world. We want to be a part of solutions to clean that up, whether that’s helping to develop new closed-loop fibers, or innovating more-efficient dye practices. We’re seeing brands big and small take a serious look at more sustainable supply chains, and thankfully that’s making more of these innovations available.”
