Fashion has always caught my attention. Through the various designs, color schemes, and materials to pick from, it is always something new to see and explore.
As a fashion designer and artist, you are creating a product for a purpose and in creating to make a difference. As for Karen and Howard, they were filled with a sense of purpose and determined to pioneer the sustainable fashion movement.
Karen Stewart and Howard Brown launched their ethical fashion line Stewart+Brown, in 2002. Through their inspirations held from their love and respect for nature and their passion for design, they brought together the things they both liked and incorporated it into a brand.
Each Stewart+Brown collection, at an elemental level, is a fusion of experiences and insights filtered through the duo’s creative core and rendered into the brand’s own unique and personal aesthetic.
Through the distinctive designs in their clothing, they aspire to apply the wisdom of sustainability to everything they do while inspiring others, just as they have been inspired, to do the same. Creating awareness and giving a purpose through the use of fashion is something that is unique. Stewart+Brown donates a percentage of all sales to non-profit, non-governmental environmental and social welfare organizations.
By designing, creating, and giving, Stewart+Brown are changing the ways we see fashion. Learn more about sustainable fashion with Howard Brown, one of our Key Note speakers, at the Freedom and Fashion Collective Conference.
