The New Fashion Initiative

Our Mission


We empower cross-sectional collaboration that is changing the fashion industry.

The fashion industry must stop the exploitation of workers and the planet. We work directly with academics, designers, businesses, and other non-profits to bring sustainable solutions to a broken system. We are here to help key industry stakeholders to 1) collaborate 2) share research 3) convene in order to effectively address systemic issues. TNFI supports current and future leaders to be positive agents of change.
