Bio

Eleanor is a sustainable stylist & consultant in Los Angeles.

She combines expertise in sustainability & luxury design. She has a rapid eye for proportion, fabric and function that brings you conscious sophistication to your wardrobe.

Eleanor built her expertise in sustainable fashion while running the content department for Remake, a fashion NGO seed funded by Levi Strauss Foundation to improve working conditions in the global fashion supply chain by igniting a conscious consumer movement. What Eleanor calls her best version of graduate school, she worked directly with the Founder, Ayesha Barenblat, who formerly advised on social responsibility for brands including Burberry, Chanel and Gucci Group.

Before building her expertise in sustainable fashion, Eleanor produced content for luxury design institutions including Skidmore Owings & Merrill, and publications including Surface Magazine.

She graduated with a BA in Philosophy with minors in Architectural History and French from Boston University in 2010. She’s lived in 7 cities on 3 continents.

[In sustainable fashion] we’re no longer talking about a choice between a hemp sack or a $700 T-shirt. The middle ground has grown significantly over the last few years.

See Eleanor’s full interview on The Pool for Remake.

One common misconception is that we spend less on fast fashion [brands like Zara and H&M]. Over the course of a lifetime we actually spend more on fast fashion than we would if we invest in higher quality things.

Social Impact

Remake

Today Eleanor remains a Los Angeles Ambassador of the 501c3 Remake, where she elevates the visual experience of the organization’s content and live events.

Remake is a community of designers, IG addicts, feminists, storytellers, and all around fashion aficionados, who believe that fashion can be a force for good. The community uses their purchasing power, voice, and creativity to make the invisible women who power the fashion industry visible. They are committed to breaking up with fast fashion and have taken the pledge to buy better, remaking our closets with clothes that respect women and our planet.

 

Artists For GLobal Good (AGG)

In 2018, Eleanor established the 501c3 AGG to mobilize artists for global good.

Top shelf artists are the world’s trend setters. Their art, music and style make cultural waves, and now more than ever, we’re seeing them ignite social change by making civic engagement cool.

But for the majority of artists today, there’s an ocean between them & social movements, leaving inspiring artists without the impactful work they crave, and social movements in the shadows of our digital feeds. AGG brings the two worlds together through content, events and PR. AGG campaigns ignite deep thinking, emotional response, community dialogue and action.
