After Essex celebrates the journeys and accomplishments of our diverse and inspiring alumni around the globe.

 
 
Kicking off the series, Carry Somers (MA Native American Studies, 1992) joins us to talk about her time at Essex and her career in sustainable fashion.
 
After graduating from Essex in 1992, Carry set up her multi-award-winning fashion brand Pachacuti, supporting sustainable, rural livelihoods for women in the Andean region and was the world’s first Fair Trade Certified company. 
 
Carry, who was recognised as ‘Alumna of the Year’ in 2009, is also the founder and Global Operations Director of Fashion Revolution, the world’s largest fashion activism campaign. Millions of people have joined Fashion Revolution to demand a fairer, more transparent industry, asking the question #whomademyclothes?
