The global fashion industry is worth about $2 trillion and it employs roughly 75 million people. Yet few people know about its impact on the planet and the people. Clotheshorse is a podcast that decodes and demystifies the fashion industry, its secret language, hidden strategies, and so much more. It is hosted by Amanda Lee McCarty (she/they), a fashion professional who has worked in the buying department of some of (fast) fashion’s most iconic brands. She–along with her industry friends–breaks down how our clothes are really made and sold and the work we have to do to change it. Clotheshorse is the podcast for people who love clothes but hate capitalism.
prioritizing conversations and work toward making the slow fashion/sustainability movement more accessible and welcoming to EVERYONE!
Amanda is sort of like the Robin Hood of business knowledge: stealing best practices and strategy from big business and using it to create a thriving network of small businesses!
