A veteran of the slow fashion movement, Amy DuFault is a sustainable fashion writer, consultant and former Director of Communications at Pratt Institute’s Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator. Having spent the past 20+ years as a journalist (12 of which have been laser focused on sustainable fashion), with bylines in The Guardian, Participant Media and other publications, Amy has morphed as a professional writer penning stories about sustainable fashion trends to a less embraced part of the industry focused on human rights, environmental protection and transparency.
In addition to her writing, she has served as Digital Content and Accounts Director for natural dye guru Kathy Hattori of Botanical Colors for the past 6 years, and continues to work with brands looking to improve their ethical and sustainable benchmarks.
Amy also co-organizes the Southeastern New England Fibershed whose mission is to create a regional fibershed that unites fiber to finished product. From farmer to processor, from financing to cut and sew, Amy is trying to connect the dots of the supply chain to bring production back to reinvigorate a once-thriving New England textile industry.
