I guess they're forever at the forefront and the back of your mind. They shape your decision making. You will make these decisions based on your values, so they will always shine through.
Jordan and I started creating and photographing together as a hobby, which morphed into a little bit of side work and then we realised that there is a big want for content creating. Often businesses don't have the time and we love creating content for people to use and enjoy, without having to worry about it themselves. My advice would be, make sure it's truly something you love. You never want it to become a chore and then a burden on your family.
When I wear something that is made ethically, I really feel that. I feel that. It's meaningful for me because I feel like I know the story that has gone behind producing this and the personal nature is what touches me.
Relationship and story! I buy a lot through smaller businesses and I try to be mindful of the bigger chains I support. I'm not perfect, and I have five kids which brings a financial side into it as well for us, but I'm comfortable in that I always try to choose the best that I'm able to at the time.
It's really been a ride. Pre-25 years old I really had no concept of ethical and fairly made clothing. It never crossed my mind. Post-25, it's been a journey of discovery and trying to do my best within the seasons that I'm in. I've had seasons of extreme mindfulness and then seasons of really just surviving and making the best choice of a bad bunch. Right now I'm really in a place of quality over quantity for myself.
The Arc Top is definitely my favourite. I love the cut, the style and how it goes well with anything! It makes me feel casual with a side of glam!
I have an old-school ReCreate crew from one of the earliest releases that I'll never get rid of. I remember the day I got it. It has birds in the corner and always reminds me of the freedom that ReCreate brings to the people of Cambodia. And my Loyal Workshop pieces hold significance as well.
