Olivia Kennaway is the founder of sustainable, ethical fashion label Lalesso and more recently, Asha:Eleven. Olivia helped drive the ethical fashion movement in Africa with early involvement in the Ethical Fashion Forum. She was also the instigator of what is today, Soko Kenya, which was then set up by Joanna Maiden in the Rukinga Wildlife Sanctuary (and now manufactures ethical fashion for big brands like Asos Africa). She is passionate about building an inspirational label that considers both planet and people by taking sustainability to the next level.
We caught up with Olivia in Betty’s Bay, a small coastal town just outside of Cape Town on a moody and stormy day (so please enjoy a little wind whistling as background ambiance).We covered Olivia’s particularly inspiring journey in ethical and sustainable fashion, her impact on communities and individuals and the brand values that she has built into Asha:Eleven to take it to the next level of sustainability.
