I love your thinking, Zelam. I don't know if there are. I haven't been in the fashion industry for long yet. But I know there are many different voices out there. Scattered. Not connected. And most of them are just trying to do circular because they can stay in existing patterns then. And do a bit more good. But there's so much broken in this industry, circular will not be enough.

I myself try to get Patagonia to listen. I know they want to transition. But I also know their difficulties. So, I thought, if they line up with Novamont (the people there are definitely very aware of my kind of thinking) they might be an inspiration for the rest of fashion.

And I'm also trying via the women groups I'm teaching. Some of them are into big fashion. And the educational institutes. I try to do so much, but I'm drowning in this fashion world. And there are so many other sectors to transition. So for now, I think I'll focus on my book and the youtubes I'm planning to make.

But amplifying the voice by others would help a lot too. Thanks for being out there and thinking with me!
