Pre-Loved Podcast: Ayesha Barenblat
This week’s guest is Ayesha Barenblat, the founder of non-profit organization, Remake. Labeled as the Peace Corps of fashion, Remake is a non-profit that believes that fashion can be a force for good.
As I’m sure you know, this week is Fashion Revolution Week. Fashion Revolution Week is a global movement which falls on the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1138 people and injured many more on 24th April 2013.
In honor of Fashion Revolution Week. Ayesha and I discuss how to use our purchasing power and our voice to make the invisible women who power the fashion industry visible. We talk about breaking up with fast fashion, and how to buy better, and of course for many of us -- that means buying pre-loved.
To support its Mission, Remake takes influencers and future designers into garment maker communities around the world to meet the women who make our clothes face-to-face. Remake hope to build empathy across the fashion supply chain, inspiring the next generation to use their power to change the system for good.
In this episode of Pre-Loved Podcast we discuss Remake’s newest film short film, Made in Mexico, a film in which we meet Olivia, Veronica, and Reina, the fierce women makers behind fast fashion labels that are made in Mexico.
This is a powerful one -- I
can’t wait for you to hear it.
