My dream is that I know my wardrobe like I know myself. I want to know where my clothes came from, who made them, what they're made of, how long they last before they need repair, how they make me feel, and how they relate to my identity.
I believe that by knowing my wardrobe, I'm a more informed owner of my clothing and can support the causes that I believe in - ethical labor practices, sustainable supply chains that limit damage to the environment, and self-expression.
Gold Zipper is a resource for anyone interested in changing the conversation from being a consumer to becoming an owner of their clothing. You'll see that I have items in my wardrobe that don't align perfectly with my philosophy; change happens one step at a time.
