Learn more about each of our panelists:
Aarav Chavda, Co-Founder & CEO, Inversa
At INVERSA, we know that ocean sustainability and climate change are some of the most critical issues facing the world today. We are a company that becomes part of the solution.How do we do it? By repurposing a creature that has destroyed ecosystems in the waters of the South Pacific and Indian Oceans: The Lionfish. This invasive species eats up to 5,000 native species each year, with the population expanding exponentially. National institutions such as the US Government and environmental advocacy groups have struggled and fought to find practical solutions. INVERSA brings everyone the opportunity to look good and do good for the planet at the same time.
Annette Felder, Co-Founder, Felder Felder
Felder Felder, a sustainable fashion brand was started together with her twin sister Daniela Felder, after graduating from Central Saint Martins in London, UK. Their aesthetic is a homage to their music icons, mostly from the 60s and 70s and has been dubbed Rock’n’Roll Elegance. Felder has been part of the official London Fashion Week calendar for 8 years and our catwalk shows have become known for style, music and high energy. Focusing on conscious choices, Felder has been at the forefront of sustainable fashion, working closely with textile manufacturers and likeminded brands to embrace eco and vegan developments.
