About Kestrel Jenkins
Kestrel is a storyteller & conscious style maven who believes fashion + ethics can jive, and maybe even thrive together. For over a decade, she's been enthralled with asking questions about where our clothes are made, what they are made of and who made them.
She got her start interning with People Tree in London, and from that point on, she knew the only world she wanted to live in was one where she could embrace her style without sacrificing her values.
About Conscious Chatter
An inclusive audio space, Conscious Chatter opens the door to conversations about our clothing + the layers of stories, meaning and potential impact connected to what we wear.
It's a venue that allows us to continue to learn more about the garment industry and how we can all be a bigger part of positive change in the industry.

“IN TIMES OF UNCERTAINTY, BUREAUCRACY DOESN’T WORK, HIERARCHY DOESN’T WORK — AND WE NEED TO HAVE THESE MUCH MORE FLAT NETWORK SYSTEMS, WHICH SEEM TO BE MUCH MORE INNOVATIVE, MUCH MORE AGILE — AND THAT’S REALLY ABOUT TEARING DOWN SOME OF THE CULTURES THAT ARE REALLY EMBEDDED WITHIN THE FASHION INDUSTRY AT THE MOMENT.”
