Fashion mentoring and coaching

Get on the path to a sustainable future in fashion

You’re here because you want your apparel to be as sustainable as possible, right?

It’s a BIG ask and can be very overwhelming to know where to start, what to prioritise and what steps you need to take – especially if you don’t have a background in fashion design. You might be worried you won’t be taken seriously, struggle to know what information to trust or even have the confidence to know how to validate the legitimacy of people or businesses out there. And if you follow the wrong information, there’s a real chance it could damage your business and cost you money. 

But it doesn’t have to be so scary and you don’t have to go through it alone.

Hi, I’m Belinda, your fashion mentor…

I’ve been in your shoes. In my 20+ year career as a fashion designer, I always tried to look beyond what brands and businesses were telling me is a sustainable product or material. Rather than taking it at face value, I developed my own assessment from a more holistic point of view.

I’m bringing both local and international expertise with multiple countries, building 7 figure categories in business. I’ve sat in boardrooms navigating tough ‘closed door’ conversations around the delicate balancing act of price vs value countless times. 

As your fashion coach, I don’t gatekeeper any information: I’ll look at your products from a commercial lens, as well as a sustainability one, to make sure you know exactly what’s going on. 

Together, we’ll move through the murky waters of sustainable fashion to get you on a much better path.

How it works

To give you the tools and know-how to develop your product through a sustainable and ethical lens, we’ll work together for either 6 or 9 weeks with a 60 minute online call each week. Each session I’ll guide you through a different topic, everything from refining your design and sampling processes to strategizing for new seasons, and more.

What you’ll learn

Added bonuses...

  • Information sheets: Save your bottom line and honour your creations by using the information sheets to refer back to

A hopeful future is in the hands of intentional creatives… like YOU!

Often the biggest disruptors are from outside our industry, mostly because they have a beginners mindset and a bold vision. The thing is, it’s difficult to make lasting and meaningful change if you don’t know the lay of the land. That’s where I come in… I’m here to guide you through the process and show you the tools you’ll need along the way. Together we can design a more sustainable future, one garment at a time.

Looking for longer term support?

For a select number of clients, I also offer 3 and 6 month packages to support you through your sustainability journey. This is especially helpful for brands looking to create new products and would benefit from my extensive expertise in the entire product lifecycle.
