the film

Fashion designer Amy Powney of cult label Mother of Pearl is a rising star in the London fashion scene. Raised off-the-grid in rural England by activist parents, Amy has always felt uneasy about the devastating environmental impact of her industry. When she wins the coveted Vogue award for the Best Young Designer of the Year, which comes with a big cash prize, Amy decides to use the money to create a sustainable collection from field to finished garment, and transform her entire business. Over the following three years, her own personal revolution becomes the precursor of a much bigger, societal change.

After the film, there will be a special Q&A featuring the below speakers (and more to be announced!)

 

Lauren Baxter – Editor Peppermint Magazine

Lauren Baxter is the editor of Peppermint – a quarterly Australian publication about style, sustainability, sewing and substance. Overseeing all things across Peppermint’s print and digital output, an average day can see her turning her hand to writing, editing, art direction, styling and more. She has worked professionally in media for 10 years and is passionate about making a positive impact through the power of authentic storytelling. With a keen eye on cultural and social movements, Lauren’s vision for Peppermint is to champion conversations that educate, entertain and engage while empowering readers to mobilise and make real change in their communities. She cares deeply about not just elevating others to make that change but making a difference herself as a player in the media game – recognising the privilege that holds and offering a balm to clickbait and tabloid culture.
