Episode 33 - The Struggle for a sustainable fashion industry with kate Mackay
Let's talk about the global fashion industry.
Designer and small business owner, Kate Mackay shares with us her insights on fast fashion and the issue of trend culture, after over a decade in the biz. She tells the story of launching her own fashion label – Flared Fashion - in the last 2 years, and the overwhelming response her style has had in the Australian retro festival market. A custom designer, creating her own prints and using her label to promote accessible and ethical fashion for self expression, Kate works to break down barriers on what men should and shouldn’t wear and address the challenges with sustainability in her industry.
