Aditi Mayer

Aditi Mayer uses her platform to start conversations on fashion through the lens of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, socio-economic status and much more.

For the 52,000-plus followers on her personal Instagram account, she is a spokesperson for small sustainable businesses, local and minority-run brands, a speaker on concepts of ethical manufacturing practices, and a creator of visually-compelling editorials that spotlight designers’ works.

She is currently working to organize garment workers in Los Angeles, and to promote regional fabric manufacturing techniques. Ms. Mayer inspires us to look to the pre-colonial past for indigenous solutions that are less harmful to our climate, and to understand how systems of labour, agriculture, and climate interconnect.
