Sarah works to influence the public, the industry and policymakers on social and environmental issues across the sector, as well as leading the development of Fashion Revolution’s annual Fashion Transparency Index.

Fashion Revolution believes that the fashion industry needs a radical paradigm shift and that the way that we produce and consume clothing needs to be fundamentally transformed. This means business models will need to change, consumption patterns will need to shift, and a multiplicity of solutions will be required in order to move the fashion industry towards a future that values people, planet, creativity and profit equally.
We believe that positive change starts with transparency, traceability and openness. Transparency shines a light on issues often kept in the dark. Transparency helps to reveal the structures in place so we can better understand how to change them. We believe that more transparency will lead to greater accountability and understanding, which eventually will lead to a change in the way business is done.
