How 7 Sustainable Fashion Influencers Shop (& Sometimes, Don’t Shop) Consciously

Fortunately, a select few members of fashion's inner circle are using their platforms to change the way the industry works — specifically on the sustainable front. The seven influencers ahead might draw us in with their unique ability to put together outfits and pose for the camera, but it's their interest in eliciting change that really keeps us coming back for more.
