On this journey, I didn't think it was very revolutionary trying to meet my sheep that made my clothes, but it turns out it was.
Before I knew it, I was on the news, the subject of a documentary, writing columns for British "Vogue."
And that gives me a lot of hope.
But fashion is still everything you think.
It's trends, fast pace, logos, brands.
But to fashion something is to make something. And that was where my passion came from.
And what I've learned in this journey is if I'm going to continue to design and fashion clothing, I must also fashion our future.
The two things come hand in hand.
Yes, there are technical solutions to this problem, to these problems, and I can talk endlessly about them, from biomimicry-based dyes and finishes to regenerative and recycled textiles.
And it's important. Technology is important.
But the other thing I've learned in this journey is that it's only when we reconnect back to the living world and look at it in awe and wonder and the respect that it deserves will true systemic change happen.
And when I talk about the living world, I talk about the people and the planet.
Box-ticking is greenwashing, and greenwashing is dangerous.
It's just the medicine to a symptom and not the solution to a problem.
And fashion absolutely should not cost the Earth.
Nature designs or fashions the most incredible designs there are. We just simply forgot to look.
So my ask: next time you open your wardrobes, instead of seeing clothes, brands, logos and perhaps your favorite dress, delve a little bit deeper.
Go to Narnia.
And instead see the vast and unique ecosystem that makes each piece individual and its inherent connection to our planet on which all of our lives depend.
