Kaitlin Martin is the designer of an emerging womenswear collection called Silver and Gold

Clothing. The collection is made between Vancouver, B.C. and a women-run fair-trade facility in

Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Kaitlin is passionate about sustainable design and focuses much

energy on creating entirely plastic-free fashion – eschewing plastic buttons for natural

alternatives and using only plant-based natural and organic fibres. Kaitlin also works to educate

her clientele about the negative consequences to the planet, people and animals which result

from the fast-fashion industry through social media, speaking at schools and blogging.
