Hazel Stewart Brown was born in 2002, the same year that her parents, Karen Stewart and Howard Brown, founded their pioneering eco-fashion label. Stewart + Brown, which they pronounce “Stewart Brown,” rather than “Stewart and Brown,” was named not after themselves but for Hazel—and six years later, for her brother, Huxley, as well. Here, the budding eco-fashionista hones her journalism skills by interviewing Stewart + Brown’s co-founder and design director, whom she happens to know by another name: Mom.

Hazel: When is your birthday?

Karen: September 25. When’s your birthday, Hazel?”

Hazel: December 27! How old are you? Oh! I know this one…aren’t you 40 years old?

Karen: Yes, I am.

Hazel: What is you favorite color?

Karen: My favorite color is green because it’s your favorite color.

Hazel: Yup, green is my favorite. What is your favorite band or type of music?”

Karen: Well, I’m not quite sure what to call the genre of music. I guess it would be considered indie-folk—bands like Iron and Wine and Bon Iver. What’s your favorite band, Hazel?”

Hazel: Joni Mitchell and…Neil Young! And I really like that song “Hey There Delilah”…I know all of the words, do you want me to sing it for you?”

Karen: Yes! But how about we finish these questions up?

Hazel: Okay. Have you ever kissed a boy other than Daddy?

Karen: Hazel!

Hazel: (Laughing hysterically) Daddy told me to ask you!

Karen: Have you?

Hazel: Noooo…just Daddy and Huxley. What is your favorite food then?

Karen: Sushi!

Hazel: That’s my favorite, too!
