“I mean, look at Mother Theresa, Nelson Mandela and right now Elon Musk. They’ve really been showing us that yes, a single individual can really have a huge impact on the world, and never think that you can’t be that individual.”

Would you ever wear roadkill? What does it mean to vote with your wallet? Could it actually be fun to help save the world? In today’s talk with sustainable fashionista Cora Hilts, we put end to some confusion that is Ethical and Sustainable fashion. I mean, what is really the difference between recycled, upcycled and something that’s sustainably made? What does it mean that a piece of clothing is organic?? Is vintage is in our out and is it ok to claim yourself the title of a hero?

Who is Cora?

Cora Hilts who is one of the co-founders of British fashion store RêveEnVerte – a hip and trendy place for consuming ethical and sustainable fashion online. She founded the company together with her partner Natasha four years ago, in response to the evolving nature of contemporary style, something they both felt to be a bit too consumptive and trend-based for their taste. Rêve-En-Vert is their commitment to bettering the world through the medium of fashion and lifestyle. It is a project of passion to support designers who are improving the standards of the design industry.

Cora’s Retruth:

The idea that one person can’t make a change. I think that that has actually been my biggest fear this whole journey of creating Reve, believing that I as an individual don’t have the capacity to do enough. But when I look back on what I’ve been able to achieve over the last 4 years I know I’ve done some good.

I mean, look at Mother Theresa, Nelson Mandela and right now Elon Musk. They’ve really been showing us that yes, a single individual can really have a huge impact on the world, and never think that you can’t be that individual.
