Join us for a conversation on combating the fast fashion industry with Emerald Habecker and Karisa Gilman-Hernandez. We’ll discuss their sustainability journeys in fashion + get tips on how to start or continue our own. Bring your questions for a Q+A following the conversation!

Emerald has been interested in sustainability for as long as he can remember. Currently a senior at Webster University, he is working on a research project concerning sustainability in fashion. In his free time he thrifts, sews his own clothes, and customizes clothing to fit his personal style. Emerald’s handmade and altered clothing will be available to view after the conversation.
Karisa is the Community Empowerment Organizer for Dutchtown South. Ten years ago, she committed to buying only secondhand clothes for one year. It was so fun + easy that she’s stuck with it ever since.
