At the Austin Start Week Conference my ethical fashion friends and I had a panel discussion about what it means to be a social/ethical business in Austin, how our design process works, and what "success" means to us. It's such a pleasure to build community with these women for a common purpose. Check out their businesses (from right to left) and shop with purpose!

I had a super fun time talking with my friend Eric on his podcast: Engaging Life's Moments Presents. Eric is doing what he can, in his unique way to help those enslaved while also inspiring people to dream. You can hear our conversation !
