Fashion For Conservation
Lead Wardrobe Stylist
Fashion for Conservation was founded in 2012 and born in Seattle by three inspired women determined to save the world from the environmental costs of fast fashion. Our nature-inspired fashion campaigns educate consumers on animals and ecosystems with a percentage of proceeds benefiting nature conservancies and charities. Fashion for Conservation has been featured in the pages of the New York Times and Vogue, on the fashion stages of London, Milan, Ibiza, New York, Berlin, and Vancouver fashion weeks, and via global humanitarian platforms like the United Nations and TedX.
Check us out on Etsy we recently added new items to our store! Find us by typing Fashion4Conservation in the search engine and browse through unique accessories like these stunning Paiche fish earrings that were made by artisans in Iquitos, Peru!
Paiche fish is a staple in the diet of most artisan communities in the Amazon. One of largest fish in the “pond” (the Amazon River) is the Paiche (likely bigger or the same size as you). Instead of discarding the scales, artisans chose to repurpose and make art out of them.
With your purchase, the artisans that hand make the pieces sold in our shop directly receive 90% of each sale to support their future in sustainable artisan craft and are participants in Fashion for Conservation’s Artisan Empowerment & Training Program.
Rainforest Runway And Gala
Fashion for Conservation (FFC) and Hoja Nueva took dedicated fashionistas, nature lovers, and philanthropists on a walk through the world’s jungles in high style. Hoja Nueva and FFC are back in Seattle to host the 4th annual rainforest runway and gala with proceeds protecting rainforests.
In previous seasons the gala has featured animal and rainforest-inspired collections from as many as 18 international designers, hosting between 500-800 guests, while making a significant impact to conserve rainforest in the Peruvian Amazon.
