THE ORIGINS OF AWEAR WORLD
AWEAR World is a platform that inspires us to think about where our clothes are made, what they are made of, and who made them.
With the high speed chase that fashion has become in today's culture, AWEAR intends to help us all refresh our style, in a community-oriented way, where we can help each other along the journey. AWEAR is a community of mindful consumers and stylish changemakers.
Conscious Chatter is our podcast - we like to say it's "where what we wear matters". It's an audio space which allows us all to continue to learn more about the garment industry and how we can all be a bigger part of positive change in the industry.
From a young age, Kestrel was piecing together outfits & changing them multiple times a day. She contributes a great deal of her fashion eye to her Mom :: Linda, and her beloved Grandma Lee.
Her degrees in global studies & international journalism led her to merge two of her passions: social responsibility + fashion.
The origins, composition, and story behind her clothing & accessories quickly became integral to her lifestyle & aesthetic.
In 2009, she completed a yearlong project called Make Fashion Fair, in which she pledged to only purchase clothing that was made consciously with regard to people & the planet.
AWEAR takes this concept and applies it to a large community of changemakers who are prepared to take their style to the next level.
