In this three-part series, SI host Jodie Schwicht speaks with local fashion designer Cartier Dior Eliasen— a graduate of Parisian fashion school Institut Français de la Mode and former designer/sewer for brands Charles de Vilmorin, Dior and Ellery.

Fast Fashion is the large-scale reproduction of clothing designs for the mass market. In recent years, concerns about the environmentalism of this business model, as well as human-based ethics, have been brought to light.

Episode 1 discusses fast fashion, the harms of the fast fashion industry, and ethical and sustainable alternatives consumers can adopt.
