Johanna has worked as a human rights activist focused on anti-trafficking and justice issues for over 7 years. Along this journey, fashion has always been a passion for her.
Recently, Johanna started Conscious Closets as a way to tie her two passions together: fighting human rights abuses in supply chains through making conscious fashion choices. The focus of Conscious Closets is to help both women and men curate a fashionable closet that cares more about people than it does about stuff.
For the past year, Johanna has only purchased clothing that is made consciously. “I love wearing clothes that empower everyone along the supply chain journey and that’s exactly what these pieces do.”
