I am developing the Sustainable Fashion Ecosystem at the Amsterdam Impact Hub, an innovation lab for new solutions to the world's most pressing issues. Prior to Impact Hub, I lead EMEA, then Global business development for the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, which now works with +2/3 of global fashion industry.
Experienced in business development and growth strategy (including marketing & comms), market research, building partnerships, communities, impact programs, and event production in Fashion, Media/Digital, SaaS, Socio-Ecological Design (Terreform ONE think tank), and Impact Investing.
Early on, I worked with luxury specialist Juliette Longuet, building a premium ready-to-wear fashion line, and later gained experience in PR (Bismark Phillips), Events (IMG, Fashion), and Media/Editorial (Conde Nast, Whitewall Magazine). At the same time, I was an early adopter to sustainability, advocate for the triple bottom line. I consulted NY startups/ SME brands in strategy for sustainability, B-Corp and Benefit Corporation, and organised sustainable product pop-up shops.
I brought together my love of story telling, and passion for all things at the vanguard of "sustainability" in fashion, business, design, food, and lifestyles, in a highly curated resource directory and bi-weekly blog on my website, The Radically Good.
Right now, excited about driving the future of fashion in being designed with positive impact, and circularity.
I'm always interested to connect with likeminded peers, and others interested in, or working on:
- Fashion Tech, Climate tech
- Circular Businesses (B2B, B2C, P2P)
- Material innovation, NextGen & Regenerative
- Zero waste design/Carbon Neutral
- Culture/Media/Experiences/ Retail
- Sustainable luxury, slow fashion
