Sonzai 存在 : (noun) Existence, being, presence.
Helping brands do better, communicate their progress and plan for the future.

With 13 years design experience, and five years directing my namesake sustainable and ethical label, I bring a deep understanding and extensive international industry knowledge to my consultancy work. My career as a designer forms the backbone of my services. As I have had a brand myself, I have a deep understanding of the importance of individuality and creativity within a company's sustainability goals. 

 

As Sustainability Manager of UK brand Roland Mouret, and a member of British Fashion Councils 'Positive Fashion Committee' I've worked alongside leaders in the sustainable fashion space. Namely the Sustainability Managers of; Vivienne Westwood, Stella McCartney, Kering (Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga),  Net-a-porter, Matches Fashion, and Selfridges.

 

My services are flexible to best meet the needs of my clients, yet structured and systemised for success. Whether you are beginning your sustainability journey, looking to best communicate your progress, or want to take your commitments to the next level, no task is too great or too small.

 

As Richard Branson says "Doing good is good for business."
