For Amy Powney, the creative director of Mother of Pearl fashion brand, the fashion industry’s contribution to global waste and pollution has long been unacceptable. Born and raised by environmental activists in rural England, Powney has attempted to redefine the world of fashion by curating a collection of sustainable clothing from field to final product. This illuminating documentary catches Powney at the height of her career as she sets off on a journey across the world, uncovering dark truths at every level of fashion production, and placing her on the front lines of the ethical fashion movement. Fashion Reimagined captures the story of an industry veteran getting dirty to revolutionize the fashion world at its roots.
