About Founder & Editor
Verena (Erin) Polowy is a Canadian sustainable fashion influencer, blogger, youtuber, mother, 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 her experience and education on social media and through her blog to help spread awareness.
For over 10 years Erin has been part of the sustainable and ethical fashion space. She has a deep interest and passion for slow fashion practices, supporting designers and brands who are making sustainable changes in the industry, and educating people about how their clothes are made and ways to both shop and live more consciously.
