There is an impressive new blogger on the block and her aim is to openly demonstrate that fashion and philanthropy are a tailor-made match. Jessica Minkoff's blog, Fashion That Gives Back, is proof that a one-chick operation can effectively reshape some of our ingrained ideas about fashion and the future of sustainable style. Even better? Jessica does all of this looking totally chic and fresh-faced as a full-time university student and intern for Vogue.com.
It is inspiring to see the next wave of sustainable style writers and bloggers hitting the pavement, stirring up the cobwebs of publishing houses, and attending local eco-events as advocates for change. Jessica has already conducted some very interesting interviews on her blog and has not missed a beat with breaking fashion news stories, textile sourcing advancements, and environmental topics related to ethical practice.
As a double journalism and sociology major at NYU, Jessica seems to be gearing up for a career of fashion scrutiny and philanthropic reporting. Her love for sustainable fashion and giving back as a blogger definitely looks amazing on her. The future is bright with young minds like this on the scene.
