That Sounds Fun Podcast Episode 57: Barrett Ward + fashionABLE

on October 19, 2017 in That Sounds Fun Podcast with 2 comments by

My friend (and former boss) Barrett Ward founded fashionABLE, a company that creates beautiful fashion pieces and employs women around the world to help them overcome. I’m ADDICTED to their leather bags and am headed out today to get a new pair of their jeans. Barrett and I talk about the start of the company, what they are doing that NO ONE else in the fashion industry is doing (yet), and why you have to drive a squirrel over a river. (Seriously.) I think you’ll love this conversation and LOVE all things fashionABLE!

    I do not want to buy fast fashion. I want to spend money with companies that respect people, pay fair wages, etc – all the things Fashionable and many other businesses are doing. Here’s my problem – I can’t shop. I’m terrible at it. So, I have begun doing all my clothing and jewelry purchasing through StitchFix. Can someone please create a StitchFix that only sends clothing from amazing places like Fashionable, Noonday, etc? Tell Barrett Ward that should be his next project. Thank you.
