CH 42: Fellow Dreamers: Story of a slow fashion startup

Helen —  September 19, 2014 — 2 Comments

Curious Handmade Podcast Ep 42

I’m talking to Jemilla Robertson, Fashion Designer and founder of Fellow Dreamers, an ethical and sustainable lingerie and loungewear label.

We chat about why she started Fellow Dreamers, the ethical fair pay workshop in India where embroiderers create the artisan embellishments on her garments and her hopes for Fellow Dreamers to grow and help even more disadvantaged women.

  1. Hi Helen ,
    I just wanted to say a big thank you too you for sharing the Fellow Dreamers storey with your listeners. I want to also thank all your listeners who hopefully enjoyed the podcast especially those that have, given kind feedback , share the project and even backed it !

    Im really grateful for all of the help it means a great deal to everyone involved to get Fellow Dreamers off the ground. Please can I ask your listeners to continue to share the campaign with people they feel maybe especially interested.
    Today We are 90% YEY !
    So close to our target but the reality is we need to push past the target in able to start to make more sustainable plans for Fellow Dreamers so it can progress into a long term sustainable brand rather than a short term project. With 10 days left at lots still possible. Please help us to achieve the best possible result.

    Thanks everyone xx Jemilla
