ATX || Ethical Fashion Photo Shoot Collaboration

Posted by Cameron Crake on

In 2011 when Kirsten and her family moved to Austin, Texas, she had a feeling that this community would be an amazing place to launch her social business in ethical fashion. The culture here is so supportive of the farm-to-table movement + it is easy to see that conscious consumerism is a large part of what makes Austin so unique.

  

                                                 

                

  

If we fast forward a few years, it's been amazing to see so many likeminded companies grow + emerge. Last month we participated in a collaboration with 7 other socially conscious brands based in Austin. We are honored to be a part of this growing community of impact-oriented local companies

 

In addition to Raven+ Lily, the 7 other participating companies also focus on empowering artisans and giving back to those communities in meaningful ways.  Read more about them below and click on the link to Shop the LOOKBOOK from the photo shoot + support fellow ethical companies based right here in beautiful Austin, Texas.
