Autumn is a designer and ethical fashion entrepreneur. She launched her women-focused brand with a collection of seven colorful, African-inspired dresses while she was a fashion assistant at W magazine. Since then, she has launched four fair trade fashion production pilots in Africa. Autumn is also a contributor at Forbes and Fast Company.
Amanda Hearst is a true pioneer of ethical fashion. She was also the only editor who replied to me when I pitched my collection back in the day. She gave my brand its first Marie Claire features. I will always look up to her and admire her true passion for fashion that has a conscience. I am a 2019/2020 Tory Burch fellow. The doors she and her foundation team have opened for me and thousands of other women entrepreneurs has been astounding. They have just started to make their impact and I’m so excited to see what they will accomplish through their tagline, which is Embrace Ambition.
My company tagline is: Culture: connecting women across cultures to embrace diversity. Color: inspiring women to stand out through colorful and artful fashion. Conscience: thinking about how we can be better in every step of our business practices by considering people, planet, and profit in our decisions.
Something that represents me, which is artistic, bold and pretty fearless. I like comfort, color, prints and fashion that starts conversations and tells a story.
