I couldn’t be more excited about my new Ambassador role for the EcoChic Design Award! I modelled for the grand final last year where I was first introduced to Redress’ work. Since then, I have learned more about the impact the fashion industry is having on our world’s environment, economy, and devastatingly on fellow human lives. As a living and breathing poster girl for fashion, I feel the need to help spread awareness on these issues and use my voice for something bigger than myself, and the brands I work for. I’ve always believed that true change begins at an individual level. With me and with you - we are the voice of the generations to come.
