Guests on this episode:

Cherie Birkner - Founder of Sustainable Fashion Matterz
Berlin, ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช Germany

While she had everything in her hands for a long career in the traditional fashion world, Cherie started having doubts. Was her job in line with her personal values? She decided to become a photographer, focusing on the good guys who are moving the industry in the right direction. It was the spark for Sustainable Fashion Matterz, where she showcases and spreads knowledge about sustainable fashion.

Ghent, ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ช Belgium

As a young and ambitious fashion designer, Soraya tackles the industry from three angles with Studio AMA, a lab for ethical fashion. Her clothes are made exclusively from discarded textiles, they are produced locally in sheltered workplaces, and sold directly to consumers. We went to take a look in her atelier.
