Fashion and Philanthropy with Carly Burson



Today's conversation comes as a perfect follow-up to my Conscious Gifting Guide from last week. It's becoming a well-known fact that "fast fashion" has a tragically negative affect on the people that are employed to produce the items. Carly is tackling this problem head on with her fashion company Tribe Alive by adopting a socially responsible business model. In her opinion, doing business in such a manner is nothing extraordinary, or at least she feels it shouldn't be. Rather, it's just the right thing to do.  In the course of our conversation, Carly and I discussed everything from her morning routine to her style icons and creative influences and her journey from visual designer at J. Crew to becoming the founder of a company that's, if not extraordinary, truly inspiring and significant!
