    The podcast is back! In Today's episode, I am speaking to Alison Foyle, my long-time friend! It was so wonderful to have her on the podcast and find out what she's been up to. Alison is a journalism student but her background is in filmmaking she uses journalism in a nontraditional sense to give everyday people a platform to tell their story.

I also find out about her new film Covid blips an experimental 6 minute documentary of archived footage collected on an iPhone over the first UK national lockdown in the covid- 19 pandemic.

    27. Marre Muijs - Founder of ESSĒN, the label

    After studying International Fashion Management, Dutch Designer, Marre Muijs, embarked on a career as Brand Manager at a footwear wholesaler in Australia, learning the ins and out of product development and what it takes to make a beautiful shoe. From that moment, ESSĒN, the label, was born.

    ESSĒN believes that footwear is the foundation of a well-curated wardrobe and the basis of a great outfit. Shoes carry us, add height, alter posture, and affect our confidence. Marre believes you can learn a lot about a person's character and identity from their choice of shoes, their image, and how the wearer wants to be broadcast to the world. Her brand ethics are embedded in women’s day-to-day realities, striving to create an effortless style that balances design, interesting details, and comfort.

    We discuss the importance of ethical footwear, and how Marre embarked on her business journey.  I hope you all enjoy it! :)

Through activism and spreading awareness, they are working towards a kinder world.  We discuss the importance of ethical fashion, black lives matter, and the small steps we can make to change the world.  I hope you all enjoy it! :)
