James Bartle - Outland Denim - "Working in unity to a common goal - that's where the power is"
OUR MELBOURNE FASHION FESTIVAL SPEAKER SERIES
Today is a flashback episode in a series of podcasts that showcase the thought leaders who joined me for our Fashion. Business. Mindset LIVE Industry Roundtable that we hosted as part of our participation in the Melbourne Fashion Festival Independent Program: Ideas 2021. If you missed joining us LIVE, the download is available here.
In this Flashback episode from Season 1, Elizabeth speaks with James Bartle, the Founding CEO of Outland Denim.
Outland is the denim brand making jeans differently and setting a new standard in fashion manufacturing.
Driven by the desire to curb the trafficking of young girls into the illicit commercial sex industry, James created Outland Denim to generate training and employment opportunities for women vulnerable to exploitation and abuse.
Over six years James developed a unique business model that would enable each of his seamstresses to gain a skill set in tailoring while earning a living wage, receiving ongoing support and life-enhancing education, and crafting artisan quality jeans to compete in the global premium marketplace.
Outland Denim is one of the most respected brands in our industry and we found this conversation with James so engaging as he shares his mission with unwavering conviction.
This episode was recorded in May 2020 while we were all adjusting to our 'new normal.'
