    S04EP09: Is Rental Finally Becoming Acceptable in Mainstream Fashion? With CEO and co-founder of HURR, Victoria Prew

    S04EP09: Is Rental Finally Becoming Acceptable in Mainstream Fashion? With CEO and co-founder of HURR, Victoria Prew

    There are many ways that eco-conscious fashion lovers keep their closets low-impact and fashion rental is just one of them.  In today’s episode, we will be discussing how fashion rental is a positive way to consume and how mainstream retailers can pivot into non-traditional routes to market with Victoria Prew, the co-founder and CEO of HURR, the fashion marketplace changing the way we wear.  HURR aims to address an underserved market of women who want access to the latest trends, without the commitment of purchase. Prew is the first to tap into the growing market, spearheading rental fashion and shifts in millennial behaviour.

    Headquartered in London, HURR aims to address an underserved market of women who want access to the latest trends, without the commitment of purchase. Prew is the first to tap into the growing market, spearheading rental fashion and shifts in millennial behaviour.

    Prew studied Real Estate, launching her own technology product before training as a Chartered Surveyor. The entrepreneur identified an opportunity born from two complementary movements: the rise of sustainable fashion and the rental revolution. The website showcases an unlimited ‘virtual wardrobe’ for luxury rentals, including curated edits, the latest trend pieces and celebrity wardrobes. HURR carries over £10 million+ of inventory and is showing no signs of slowing down. Partnerships with Depop and Selfridges are putting HURR on the map as a pioneer of the fashion tech sector.

    S04EP08: What is Ethical Photography? With Eunice Pais, founder of Pais Agency

    As influencers are no strangers to photography and photoshoots, but what impact does what we do and the wider fashion industry have on the environment? Can photography be carbon neutral as well as environmentally and socially impactful?  We are speaking with Eunice Pais, founder of Pais Agency to find out just that…

    Eunice Pais is a photographer and co-founder of PAIS.  PAIS is a photography production agency specialized in carbon neutral and socially impactful fashion photo productions.  The agency focuses on addressing systemic imbalances in fashion photography by supporting people and celebrating a diversity of voices through deep engagement in the ethical fashion community.

    S04EP07: What goes into getting a B Corps Certification with Kristi Soomer, founder of Encircled

    S04EP07: What goes into getting a B Corps Certification with Kristi Soomer, founder of Encircled

    Have you ever heard of the phrase “B Corps Certified?”  In the UK there are only 16 certified B Corporation fashion brands

    Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corps are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.

    Encircled is a slow fashion brand that does it all. Founded by Kristi Soomer, Encircled is one of the few apparel brands that is a Certified B. Corp, which puts the planet and people before profits. To give you some perspective, there are only 9 apparel brands in Canada that are Certified. B Corps, and only 4 of these are female-founded/majority female owned B.Corps.
