About Founder & Editor
Verena (Erin) Polowy is a Canadian sustainable fashion influencer, blogger, youtuber, mom, entrepreneur and sewist currently based in Edmonton, Alberta.
She grew up loving fashion and while pursuing a bachelors degree in fashion design was horrified to learn just how destructive and abusive clothing manufacturing can be. This resulted in not only changing her personal shopping habits but also sharing what she’s learned and trying to help the industry move in a more positive direction.
For over 10 years Erin has been exploring and learning about sustainable and ethical fashion. She has developed a deep passion for slow fashion, supporting designers and brands who are making sustainable changes in the industry, and helping others learn how their clothes are made and how to both shop and live more consciously.
