EA Lepine

Founder, Arrowroot

Denver

I've been designing clothes since I was in High School, but first became interested in ethical fashion when I did a college internship with a non-profit in Honduras called Mi Esperanza. They teach women from impoverished communities to sew and provide well-paying jobs to their sewing graduates. I ended up working with them for several years before deciding start my own fashion line, Arrowroot. It's a line dresses designed for every day wear and is sewn entirely by a group of women at Mi Esperanza. I love fashion and I'm passionate about advocating for women in the developing world. I feel really lucky that my job allows me to do both!
