From the Editor


Fashion is such a powerful tool that I couldn’t look away as I began to learn about what it meant to support an ethical and sustainable fashion industry. There is so much good that can come out of shopping conscious fashionfrom contributing to causes we care about, like the environment, to supporting companies and small brands that value people over profit. And while there's no perfect solution to many of the environmental, social, and economic issues we face, there are steps to be taken and I believe minding how we shop, and being aware of who we are supporting and what our dollars are contributing to, is a great place to start.

Ethical Style Journal magazine was born from the idea of making shopping this way fun and accessible. It is our platform to help shape the fashion culture into one that is as much about awareness and style; a magazine using creative means to inspire much-needed change in the way we participate in fashion.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading our magazines as much as we enjoy producing them!

With Love,


Katie Pruett

Founder & Editor-In-Chief

Katie is most excited about her role as Editor-In-Chief, and ensuring the stories, the visuals, and the message we share represent the vision of the ethical fashion industry as we bring each issue to life. With a background in news media and higher education, she has always loved the storytelling experience, but nothing compares to her newfound passion for writing about ethical and sustainable style.

She was deeply inspired by Michelle Obama’s and Oprah Winfrey’s conversation at the 2016 United State of Women Summit, particularly when they spoke about turning what you do “into a platform of service."
