REV On Air: Building a Legacy Brand & Sustainable Fashion Today with Eileen Fisher
A conversation on sustainability, female entrepreneurship and the challenges and opportunities of truly ethical fashion with the iconic Eileen Fisher. We found Eileen’s passion for what she does and what she believes in infectious, and she has done things her own way since the beginning. This episode covers recycling and innovative fashion, ethical business practices and female entrepreneurship and we hope it inspires you all as much as it did us.
Eileen started her fashion brand in 1984 in the most organic of ways, with $350 of her own money, and has now turned it into a company of over 1000 people and more than 65 stores in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. Throughout this time, Eileen has remained true to her vision of the company and in recent years has redoubled her efforts to make the company a beacon of sustainability as one of the bigger fashion players. Nearly 30 years from its inception, Eileen remains an active, intrinsic part of the day to day running of the brand and is constantly seeking new and better ways of doing things.
