Stephanie N. Carnes
Stephanie Carnes is a fashion design student pursuing ethical and sustainable approaches to clothing and accessories development. She blogs about ethical fashion on her website fashionatliberty.com and is currently facilitating a fair trade design competition with a Madison retailer to bring new products to market in socially conscious ways. Stephanie’s goal is to develop her own brand and creatively direct a fashion business that embodies global well-being. She is looking forward to spending her final year of studies at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York this fall to benefit from their sustainable design resources while exploring the city.

How can you describe a weekend of student leaders from across the U.S. with an intense passion to change the world? The Orientation was a phenomenal experience to meet and build connections that I'm sure will last a lifetime.
