About Founder & Editor

Hi! I’m Verena Erin Polowy but most people know me by my middle name, Erin. 🙂

I’ve always loved fashion and while pursuing a design degree I was horrified learning just how destructive and abusive clothing manufacturing can be – I knew I needed to not only change my personal shopping habits but also try to share what I’ve learned with others and help the industry move in a more positive direction.

For over 10 years I’ve been exploring and learning about sustainable and ethical fashion and slowly building a more conscious and minimal wardrobe (and these values have also spread to other areas of my life). I am passionate about slow fashion, supporting designers and brands who are making sustainable changes in the industry, and helping others learn how their clothes are actually made and how to both shop and live more consciously.

Verena (Erin) Polowy has a Bachelor of Fashion Design and Technology and has worked for clothing brands in various roles. She is Canadian and grew up in Edmonton, Alberta which she recently moved back to after living in Germany for the last few years.
