MEGHAN SEBOLD (DESIGNER, AFIA)
I think 2013 will be all about reconstruction and evolution: breaking down our old processes and business models and creating new ways of working.
Our stories are written, we've mastered our crafts, we now just need exposure. It's possible to scale up without cutting corners, those corners being wages and environmental care. I look forward to seeing sustainable brands partner with big distributors, retailers, and brands to make our creations accessible to a discerning consumer in an unsure economic time.
With integrity and ideals we have all chosen roles that make us responsible for caring for many moving parts. The more successful we are at growing our businesses, the greater impact we can have on the passions that got us going to begin with.
