So many connections to what you've just said that intense of what I've done in my previous life. I'm thinking when I was at university and. I used to shop with these such and websites where claiming was so cheap, and I never made I never made a connection that it came from the earth I would I never even thought to the fact that impact to the environment and I definitely probably what I know I didn't. I didn't think about the chain of people and somebody somewhere that was involved with the price of making his clients and I. Think what you're doing on social media, environment is fabulous. You've recently raised Alana's with charity campaigns. You've been at the forefront to claim suggesting that the bronze behind them greenwashing customers. Could you delve into that I? A little bit? Yeah, absolutely. greenwashing as something that we say a lot in fashion, especially at the moment comes from the time whitewashing, which is basically when white people kind of whitewash industries like film, industry's takeover, different ways and Often, it's symbol creations when we as white people kind of commodified live. By coaches make are I might try and day and don't give credit where credit J. it's also kind of a marketing ploy, and it's the same with greenwashing companies often kind of telling us trying to tell us that during something good when they already notes.

To bustles if we're in a position to do so like you know hair in. The U. K. is just refill will to right. It's like a much more money during it so with function. We see Fush Bruns. Greenwash. In lots of different ways and I, yeah I I've I've taken to social media to cool when it because. I have a when I want to use it and kind of tired of the nonsense, so bronze like eight am and Zora have a kind of conscious collections, so they'll bring out a small range of clothes that a made from various things like orange juice, pope and unical tears, or whatever is. And they tell us let's go, and I'm not gonNA deny that and say it's bad. It is good we should be using. Natural fibres when we might close, but the problem with Sutton fashion bruns. Is that sure that using a kind of planet friendly planet friendly dies and materials, but what about the people making the clothes and also? The share amount of clothing that them making doesn't make up for the good that I think the goods that doing concert. No point, not percent. If their entire business H. M. so is a drop in the ocean for want of a better phrase. On Yeah. I mean recently. We've seen a lot of charity in slogan, T. Shirts. During, the pandemic and this is this is very much a kind of. nuanced debates, and I I take quite a hard stance on it, but I I also really appreciate that. We have to look at both sides so on the one hand. If we buy a SAGA TEASHA that goes to supporting for example. The NHS that's a good thing because NHS right now really need all money and they need support on frontline workers needle support that they can get. We need to keep everyone healthy, but the reason why kind of. Frustrating the spaces because the NHL isn't a charity, so this is a wider issue. Right like we made our government to give frontline workers in the NHL The adequate support, so we don't need to be funding them ourselves. That's kind of my initial frustration. And then during a pandemic, we were making t-shirts. We have to be asking the questions. Who is making the WHO's making those t shirts all they safe in factories all the social distancing. Do they have all the right? Right PPA and the same applies for the people packing those t shirts and delivering those t shirts right, so we've got to think about old of those people in that supply chain. Because if we're only thinking about the money, the money is going it. That might be going towards the NHL them. What about all the people who would potentially going to be harmed by the way that doing which will mean that they need extra help? Support you see so it's kind of. This vicious circle where although we're doing one good thing would not thinking about the big picture, and I think that's something really important by mind. If you all GonNa, buy HRC Teasha, my advice would be. Con- you is a teacher that you're going to want to with a life. Because the most sustainable close in jobs, the ones we already owed, and if we have take that, we want to have a life that going to domestic. He kind of Bay have a lower carbon footprint because we're going to be having them forever, loving them forever and valuing them forever and the second thing I would say is. Could you possibly instead donate to the coolest directly and obscenity? already have that you're doing something really goods, and you also kind of making the most of something that you already have a new. But I mean it's a huge huge Yet. Nuanced Nuance to buy in conversation will wear enough to stop because like he said this so many people involved in this chain record, a chain reaction of from the people juicing it to the materials used weather from that you said the money could go directly to the charity rather than the punch of a t shirt. And, if also looking at the fat, you mentioned at the beginning of major retailers. I mean we're talking millions and millions of pounds worth of orders happening here so surely that there was money within these companies to be to be making changes, and of course now the High Street has closed as well as the everything's moved online. Show that perhaps has impacted something along that chain as well. Yeah, so. This is this is something that I've already come up against I. mean firstly. Let's just talk about how how? Much, money is in the global power market. It's valued at three trillion dollars, so it's it's absolutely a mammoth, and of course like it's easy for for someone say, let's boycott the industry for ethical practices, but then equally we want to support the people making clothes, and.

"fush bruns" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Entrepreneurs

"Same things on Neta poor. Tayo matches as you can on all available. We go into season and place our buys at the same time that netted portait matches are placing their buys. So it is current most beautiful inventory that these brands have to offer that are presented on village just with every purchase you're able to send a girl school. I'm with the customers defined that the average customer is someone in the a millennial. Don't like using the wood. Is someone in the forties, or is it someone fifty six days you seeing differences between those customers and who is most popular? It's been fascinating. So we've actually done some focus groups on millennial gen-x and the boomers. So across the spectrum and there's resonance for the idea with all of those generations. I don't think it's an idea that just works for one generation, and we've seen that in our customer base that said, millennials are fascinating. In that they have grown up in a world very different than gen-x and boomers and are making very different decisions as a result of that. So for example, there's this amazing study done by pew in the United States that looks at the top twelve things that matter. Most millennials, number one is being a good parent. Number two is being a good spouse, but guess what? Number three is it's a head of owning your own home. It's a head of high paying job to head of being famous, making an impact good doing good, but for that to rank ahead of nine other things to me is quite extraordinary. And I think really speaks to a very different mindset than the millennials have. That's interesting is it's we're always kind of interested by fush Bruns seeming to want to connect with millennials almost any cost kind of ignoring the. Who actually have probably the people who have a bit more money in that pocket who probably in that fifty sixty perhaps. But you'll finding that g with with the business model like this, it's the millennials are really kind of really get it. That's right. They do. And Eleni all's are the older millennials are really reaching their peak earning power right now, which is why I think you have so many people chasing the millennial demographic, but this notion of being able to treat yourself and buy something rarely, lovely while also and truly buying something that is genius. And these these artists, these brands are extrordinary in the works of art that they put forward with their clothing, but how powerful to be able to personally enjoy an own that genius while unlocking the genius of others right of girls that you're sending school on your website. For instance, I mean, it feels like you almost don't push the chargeable side of it that much. I mean, if you goes, you'll your website. You kind of have to look on our story of something and realize that there is a really huge charitable parts of the of the company, but do you feel that you have to kind of compete? Well with Neta pota- on the level of platform econo- on our fashion and our edit and the product that we have. Right. I mean, the reality is someone isn't gonna buy a thousand dollar pair of shoes simply because it sends someone to school. It might have them by on our site or might push them over the edge if they're equivocating on whether they ought to do it or not. But you have to lead with fashion. I write the product that we offer needs to be something that people would want anyhow. It just happens that it that it does a lot of good and we always interested in fashion. I mean, it seems like every company had set up before. This was very much in education company. This is almost a fashion company with an education side. True. It's true. I've always loved fashion, but this is the first real foray for me from business perspective, and I have an extraordinary team. We actually hired the chief merchant from Sachs as our chief merchant, who is incredible. Our head of product is the former chief product officer for rent the runway. We've got a terrific stable of people that are that are helping Bill becomes that no, the fashion world very well. Do you have in picking clothing accessories, one saying taking things and putting grosses next other things? Kristen, our chief merchant will occasionally take me to lawn and Paris and London for the fashion shows, but she's the one who's doing the key at it. And that's who you want is impeccable and just how how much the company has grown since you set it up. So you said it was a last year last summer. We started with twelve brands and two hundred twelve skews on the site. That's when we launched and we currently have over two hundred brands and four thousand skews, which has been unbelievably exciting. We have not had one brand say no, yet which to me, I think, speaks to the power of the idea. Do you think luxury was a bit slow getting off the mall, coolness kind of stuff because I guess I mean, would now saying like companies like yours shope is now using as much gold as possible, that kind of thing. Do you think luxury was almost behind the curve when it came to this this source of, you know, being a bit more corporate social responsibility and kind of having an impact? Do you think do you think maybe the high end Browns were bit slower off the Mark? I think some of the brands
