The world needs more fashion brands that are sustainable and care about their impact on the environment. But all the buzz around the topic can be confusing. What is a sustainable fashion brand and how can businesses make that change? But, don’t worry! We’ve invited the founders of two such brands to walk you through the whole process. 

Join us for a discussion with Dessislava Bell, Co-Founder & CEO at Saint and Sofia, and Marta Llaquet, Co-Founder & CEO at SAYE. Dessislava ​​co-founded Saint and Sofia with her husband in 2020 to deliver better value fashion in a seriously sustainable way. Their work can be seen in Stylist, Harper’s Bazaar, and Elle. Marta founded SAYE (previously Wado) in 2017 as an online sneaker brand that would plant trees for each sale. What started as a Kickstarter project turned out to be a successful zero-waste brand loved by thousands. 

You’ll walk away from this with: 

  • An understanding of setting up a fair manufacturing process that respects people and the environment 
  • Ideas to reduce the carbon footprint of a fashion brand 
  • Insights for creating solid fashion design concepts focussed on longevity
  • Steps to become a transparent brand and communicate your commitments in 2022 and beyond.

Packhelp Talks are live training, panel discussions and “Ask me Anything” sessions with notable experts in their field. We talk about e-commerce, retail, packaging, design, sustainability, and more!

Dessislava Bell

Founder & Co-CEO, Saint and Sofia

Dessi co-founded Saind and Sofia with her husband Malcolm Bell in 2020. She’s one of Ernst & Young’s Winning Women and Management Today’s 30 under 30. Dessislava and Malcolm are best known for starting Zaggora, their activewear brand that grew to $60 million in sales from 1.5 million customers. Saint and Sofia is a passion project for Dessi and Malcolm, designed to deliver better value fashion in a seriously sustainable way. Dessi and Malcolm believe that quality fashion has become too expensive, and too many brands are wasteful in their production and packaging.
