Sustainably In Love

Sustainably In Love

By Guilherme Braz & Sebastian Vivacqua

It is a show aimed at debunking sustainability, targeting one of the most environmentally polluting industries in the world, Fashion. We want to embark on an endless journey to help raise awareness and appreciate the efforts of so many sustainable fashion brands, entrepreneurs, investors, and consultants. Sustainability is the solution to massive environmental problems, and it is something that everyone is chasing nowadays, yet not everyone is doing it correctly and genuinely walking the talk on this journey.

19: Honest apparel w/Ramon Barbero

What does it mean to create honest apparel?

Ramon Barbero Founder of Brava Fabrics has challenged from the start the educational aspect around what the sustainable, ethical, and social aspect in creating apparel really means. As a guest professor in business and law, he sincerely cares about rethinking fashion and is incredibly concern about slavery. He truly wants to help people lead with mindfulness about the criteria by how they make sustainable choices including caring for how they look after each piece of clothing they own.

18: Circular footwear w/ Chris Margetts

18: Circular footwear w/ Chris Margetts

In a moment where sustainability took the reigns of fashion content and storytelling, there’s a real greenwash danger associated - among multiple other factors - with the taking over of the biggest corporations applying the same sustainable messaging as the independent labels that had this approach as a distinctive factor. And even considering that parts of the chain become more sustainable, a lot - or even all - falls on the business models practiced.

To tackle the threat, smaller sustainable brands are always looking ahead and some are taking things to the next level: circularity. The early definition by Anna Brismar back in 2014 states that circular fashion applies the concept of a circular economy to sustainable development and concerns the entire life cycle of a product, from design and sourcing to production, transportation, storage, marketing, and sale, as well as the user phase and the product’s end of life.

How can we make this a reality when so many layers need to be applied and respected? It’s not easy, but some brands like Human Are Vain are doing this. The amazing path towards circular footwear led by Chris Margett is truly inspiring. And quite challenging to match a strict policy with the design goals of the brand (we all know how hard it is to make sustainable shoes look cool). Safe to say we all will be hearing a lot from Chris and HaV.

There’s much more to hear, let’s say from this conversation I got at least a brand new topic I hope to uncover soon.

12: AI meets fashion w/Alexandra Zaitseva

When it comes to sustainability, tech is one of the cornerstones and probably the main enabler for scaling business best practices. In this episode, we had the pleasure to talk with Alexandra Zaitseva from, a groundbreaking company that automatically creates 3D body models, matches it to product data and user return behavior to guarantee the right sizing across all different brands in their database. A lot of advantages arise for presize clients in their conversion rates, but here at Sustainably In Love we focused on the amazing job the company is doing decreasing returns up to 74% in their portfolio.

11: The importance of 100% organic collections in kids fashion w/Janos Pal

11: The importance of 100% organic collections in kids fashion w/Janos Pal

They say the children today will shape our tomorrow. If that is the case what impact can the clothes they wear as newborns and toddlers in their education when becoming the future fashion consumers? We took this idea in mind to talk with Janos Pal, co-founder of liilu, one of the most promising and fastest-growing kids labels in Europe. Despite the growth, the brand is a true believer of slow fashion, not only by the continuous bet on 100% organic cotton collections but also by consciously design oversize collections to enable the longevity of each garment, passed sibling from a sibling.

Why do the 17 sustainable development goals matter? In this 10th episode of the show, we got together with Cecilia Landeros who was nominated in the category of the Future Sustainability Leader #IEMAawards2020. She is a Sustainability and Environmental Consultant at Arup, someone that graduated with merits in sustainability, and with deep passion for promoting the 17 SGDs. These are the goals the UN has set forward for the world to achieve by 2030. What are the main challenges that will arise for us to achieve these goals? And how long will humans take to develop the awareness and consciousness to care for them?
