About The Speakers:
Arcana | Arianna Reagan Is the founder of Arcana New York. The brand operates with the mission to make sustainable and ethical fashion the new archetype of the industry. By doing fashion strictly on her own terms, Arianna realized she could empower women and textile artisans, bring art and soul to the pieces she designed by rooting them in history and global identity and effect positive change on the environment by investing in sustainable textiles. Arianna now lives in Brooklyn with her husband and two cats and travels at every opportunity.
Article 22 | Elizabeth Suda founded ARTICLE 22 when she met artisans in a rural village melting US bombs into spoons. After two years in the Merchandising Department at Coach, she packed her bags and traveled to Laos. She was on a mission to understand how local, sustainable crafts made by women could be plugged into the global fashion market. Having studied History at Williams College and Oxford University, she was beguiled by her lack of awareness of the Secret War in Laos 1963-1974 which left a legacy of 80 million unexploded bombs. She created the Peacebomb bracelet with the idea of buying back the bombs. Since, ARTICLE22 has developed into a global business, selling an evolving collection of jewelry and home goods to customers in 40 countries.
