Fashion At Liberty is a blog focused on ethical, sustainable, and socially conscious style run by Stephanie Carnes. The site kicked off in 2011 with the intent to explore the work that individuals, companies, and organizations are doing to make the world a better place by utilizing new approaches in fashion design and responsible production.
Here are a few core values that have stuck:
- Respect and help others.
- Guard the land.
- Steward resources.
- Create beauty and value.
- Shop responsibly.
Stephanie believes in the age-old virtues of ingenuity and craftsmanship. After growing up in the mountains of Cali and Idaho and later traveling to places like El Salvador and India, her conviction grew to advocate for social good in ways that go beyond a simple handout. Right now she’s completing her Design Studies degree in Madison, Wis. and developing her own work over here.
