A year after the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, how much change have we seen within the industry? For this week’s Connection theme on Sew & Tell, I speak with Juliette Donatelli, founder and editor of the sustainability-focused website spades + siLK, about the intimate connections between our choices as consumers and the impact of the fashion industry on environment and economy. Juliette’s background and education are in environmental science, and it was through that work that she discovered a passion for championing sustainability within fashion. On today’s show, you’ll hear from Juliette about the mission and meaning behind spades + siLK, why she loves organic cotton, the significance of last week’s Fashion Revolution Day and its connection to the Rana Plaza tragedy, her take on the concept of “ethical fast fashion,” a few of her favorite brands, labels, shops, and beauty products, and more!

Plus, I’ve got a playlist full of great new material from established favorites San Fran bands Thee Oh Sees and The Fresh & Onlys, as well as up-and-coming artists Coldair, Fear of Men, and more. So join us on BTR as we examine the essential connection between our money and our values.
