Impact Fashion Leaders | Fall Speaker Events

Join us for two exciting nights at the INDIGENOUS sustainable fashion store! 

In conversation with Co-founder and CEO Scott Leonard, local ethical fashion brand INDIGENOUS will feature trailblazers in sustainable design. Help us grow local awareness and encourage dialogue about the way clothes are made, and the positive impact our choices can make in the lives of real people and on the environment. Topics will include regenerative systems; the lifecycle of clothing; alternatives to overconsumption; the benefits of natural and organic clothing; and the downfalls of synthetics.
