Featured in 201 Magazine's Earth Month special on Sustainable Fashion

So honored to be featured in the Earth Month special of 201 Magazine!¬† When the writer came to me, he thought I'd be perfect to talk about sustainable fashion¬†ūüíö and I was overjoyed.¬† I am so proud to produce our recycled activewear in Los Angeles and feel honored for such a feature!¬†

Transcendent Active in 201 Magazine

"It’s easy to not notice the effects fast-fashion has on the planet when I was designing from a cubicle in Midtown Manhattan. Coming up with dozens and dozens of new styles at a rapid pace, I never had the time to think about it.  I never saw who made them or how they made them.  I never saw where the unsold products went.   I was just doing my job.  But as I got older and more aware of the environmental impact of the fashion industry, I knew that it didn’t match my own values for a clean planet." When I had the idea of starting Transcendent, I knew that I wasn't going to feed into the fast-fashion cycle that I had been trapped in for so long.  I knew that if I was going to start something myself, it would match the ethics I have on the inside with the ethics of how I dress on the outside.

I love that 201 Magazine asked me for some of my favorite sustainable influencers.  This was so easy for me to come up with that I had to share here as well.  These women are amazing resources that have influenced my path towards sustainable fashion and hope they will influence your sustainable journey as well.

O.Sister's

My all time FAVORITE¬†digital fashionistas¬†are The O. Sisters!¬† Well, they are 2 sisters, 1 is a teenager and the other is a 20-something year old and then the real star, is their 50 something year old mom! I love how they shop their closet and upcycle items they've had for years¬†and turn them into new looks.¬† It also really helps that they are MAJOR Transcendent Active fans.¬† Woot woot ūü•≥
