Where would we be without creative collaboration? This week’s Episode is all about fashion community, its power to change the world, and the idea that together we are stronger.

You're going to meet the inspiring change-maker Jackie Ruddock, CEO of The Social Outfit, a Sydney-based social enterprise and fashion brand that works with refugees and new migrants to provide first Australian jobs in the fashion industry.

What it’s like to come to a new country and to try to build a new life? How can fashion help? Community and giving back are central to this story. We discuss the challenges and joys of running a social enterprise, the magic powers of sewing, and our common humanity. And fabulous style!

This show is brought to you by Bianca Spender in celebration of Fashion Revolution week. #whomademyclothes
