The Sustennial interviews Cailtin Decker, the sustainable fashion designer behind the Decker brand from Adalinda’s New York Fashion Week show.
Caitlin began her journey living in Cambodia working in Public Women’s Health and Development. While she was there, she began to make her own clothes with the help of local women who were experts in weaving and pattern making. She also saw first hand the impacts of fast fashion – living in the area of many garment factories. She saw how women workers were treated and regularly saw toxic dyes in the rivers.
Inspired by the functionality behind the Cambodian style as well as their colorful markets – Caitlin launched her own brand Decker shortly after coming home to the states. She makes each piece so that they are adaptable to your body (however it may shift throughout your life) and with low impact, durable materials.
Listen in to learn about the sustainable elements behind each of these materials as well as the dying process. Huge thank you to Caitlin!
