Voices of the revolution

There’s a movement underway to fix the fashion system. Here are some of the innovators who are changing the game and redesigning fashion as a force for good.

Sharon McGlinchey never wanted to make her own skincare line, much less an organic one. “I was dragged there kicking and screaming,” says the skin therapist and founder of MV Skintherapy. “I was a cosmetics snob. I thought good skincare could only come from France, Switzerland or Germany.” But while on a quest to help a client who’d developed “a severe petrochemical sensitivity,” McGlinchey, who is based in Sydney, Australia, attended a workshop on how to make natural skincare. “It blew my head off,” she recalls of what she discovered over 20 years ago. She went on to formulate a cream for her client, and later added rose essential oil and it became her cult product, Rose Soothing & Protective Moisturizer. While her products are organic, they’re not certified. In order to do that in the case of her moisturizer, she would need to add a higher content of water combined with powdered aloe vera to qualify; water alone can’t be classified as organic.But that would render it a lotion and she refuses to do that. “I want to say I’ve got a bloody good cream,” she says. “Not a certified organic one.” L.H.
