    Meet Allie Cameron: The woman who made Hara

    Meet Allie Cameron: The woman who made Hara

    Allie Cameron founded Hara the Label in 2016 after her travels led her to new insights on the fashion industry today. After seeing the the environmental devastation that the production and distribution of clothing has on our people and planet, she knew a change had to be made. Hara mostly creates intimates as well as many other products - all of which are produced with extreme care and thoughtfulness. Allie and her team also are paving the way for brand voice and identity on social media. They use their platform to sell their clothes, but also to spread positive messages to their audience. We talk lockdown, finding your passion...and sticking with it.

    Make it fashunnn dahling, but vegan!

    Make it fashunnn dahling, but vegan!

    Sisters Jess and Stef Dadon are the founders of Twoobs, an Australian sustainable footwear brand. Having started sneaking into fashion week and finding themselves uncomfortable in their heels, an idea was born; shoes that fight the patriarchy and climate crisis in one! Lucy asks about making a name for yourself and building their way up through the industry. 
    What does it mean to run a "vegan" business? How does one uphold their values through each step of the production line? More importantly, what do you do when you're unhappy with current practice, or the way you're living your life? The Dadon sisters considered even closing their brand for the good of the planet. Thankfully, the girls were empowered to stop, think and, reshape the way they approached design, manufacturing and all the rest of it. 
    Icons, for sure. xo
