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.
