“I believe it’s time for the sustainable fashion movement to expand and move toward ‘responsibly made’ fashion.

“Sustainability has focused on the environmental issues and that definition must now include the social and human issue, as well. We need to start designing, sourcing, producing, and selling with more responsibility and accountability, both environmentally and socially.

“Consumers are certainly becoming more and more aware of the issues in how products are being produced and the effect this has on themselves, their families and their communities at large.

“They are becoming savvier about wearing clothes that might be unhealthy for them and their families. Sustainable and responsible fashion will become increasingly more desired by consumers—like the organic food industry.”

Amber Valletta, supermodel, actress, founder of Master & Muse, and co-host of the 2016 Copenhagen Fashion Summit, discussing why sustainability in fashion should take a more holistic view.
