Sustainable Fashion Expert, Podcast Host

& Keynote Speaker

“If we don’t change the systems, we can’t make fashion sustainable.”

When it comes to creating a sustainable fashion business, it can be difficult to know what’s really going to move the needle and what’s really just ‘greenwashing’. Belinda Humphrey understands this on a deep level after working for some of the world’s most popular apparel brands, like Bardot and Target, for more than 20 years.

Now working as a sustainable fashion consultant and freelance fashion designer, Belinda works with purpose-driven brands on ways to reduce their footprint and improve their products. From farm to finished product (and every part of the production process in between), Belinda goes beyond face-value to find who is really embodying their sustainability message. 

Belinda is a thoughtful, considered and grounded keynote speaker, prized for her straightforward approach and ability to communicate complex systems in simple ways for a variety of different audiences to understand. She’s on a mission to shine a light on how fashion businesses can truly ‘walk the talk’ when it comes to being sustainable.
