Founded by actor Evelyn Sharma, Seams For Dreams advocates for a more sustainable and responsible fashion future.
Seams For Dreams was founded upon the belief that every piece of fabric can and should be reused instead of being discarded into landfills. This could be through reusing, recycling, or upcycling. In order to take the conversation up a notch, SFD has constituted a strong advisory board, comprising influencers from various fields who will contribute their own expertise to create an impact and help move SFD forward towards its mission and goals.
The advisory board features significant names such as Patrick Duffy, whose passion for social impact led to the creation of Global Fashion Exchange in 2013, an international initiative challenging the fashion industry to create a more sustainable world.
It includes representatives from the fashion industry such as Akshay Tyagi-celebrity fashion stylist, Kriti Tula- apparel designer, Roma Narsinghani- founder of her namesake jewelry brand, Shubhika Davda-designer and creative director of the label Papa Don’t Preach, Suki Dusanj-Lenz- Country Head of Fashion Revolution India and Shivang Dhruva- founder and director at FAD International.
The sustainability diaspora is represented by Nandini Singh -director of the ACG Cares Foundation, Devina Singh -human rights and environmental activist and Atiya Rakyan – an innovator in the field of recycling plastic.
The marketing minds on the board are Chandini Chandiramani -Marketing Specialist and Reeta Ramamurthy Gupta -bestselling author and marketer. Actor Pallavi Sharda and Abheejit Khandagale -innovator and entrepreneur complete the new advisory board for 2021.
“AT Seams For Dreams, we truly believe that pre-loved clothing and responsible practices are the way into the future of fashion and hope that our events lead Mumbai to become a hub for thrift stores in India. Our new advisory board comprises people who have diverse skills and are passionate about sustainability,” says founder Evelyn Sharma.
SFD’s mission is to clothe 100,000 people in need across India every year. Claire Marrinan is the Director of Communications. She is a holistic health & wellness advocate and entrepreneur directing her efforts to increase awareness regarding responsible fashion and mindful lifestyle.
