Pre-Loved Podcast: Orsola de Castro
Alright, let’s talk about today’s guest. Today is the first day of Fashion Revolution Week, and we’re speaking with the co-founder of the movement, Orsola de Castro.
Orsola de Castro is an internationally recognised opinion leader in sustainable fashion. Her career started as a designer with the pioneering upcycling label From Somewhere, which she launched in 1997 until 2014. In 2013, with Carry Somers, she founded Fashion Revolution, a global campaign with participation in over 100 countries around the world. Her first book “Loved Clothes Last” was published this year, in February 2021.
On this episode we talk about her love of upcycling, how the sustainable fashion industry has evolved in the last 25+ years, the start of Fashion Revolution Week and how it has grown into a global movement, and -- of course -- loving your clothes.
All that and more! Let’s dive right in!
