This week our founder, Katie Young Gerald, an expert in sustainable uniform/textile design, is in Hong Kong for Hong Kong Fashion Week.
On Monday, she spoke about her experience of working in the fashion and textiles industry specifically with luxury brands. Katie is no stranger to Hong Kong having lived there for two years from 1997 to 1999.
During that time Katie was able to expand her knowledge and connections in the Far East for sourcing, product development, manufacturing and consultancy for British brands. She then continued in London from 2000 until today.
Her services filled a gap for smaller British brands who needed to build a bespoke product range and establish a sustainable supply chain with ethical practices.
