Cecilia Frajoli Gualdi:
I work as a lawyer for the media sector and very recently had a baby. I am interested in fashion and social issues. After seeing the documentary “The True Cost”, I could no longer enter a shop with the same lightness and enthusiasm as before. I became more and more convinced that fashion is a real social issue, I decided that the time had come to do something concrete. Thanks to crowdfunding through Banca Etica and thanks to all the supporters, I created with my partner Fabio, Dress the Change, hoping to make it increasingly easy for consumers to make an informed purchasing decision in the field of fashion.
