Initially conceived as an alternative handmade zine, produced by New-York based stylist Jamie Ortega, Sumzine has since grown into a sleek biannual magazine on sustainable fashion.
Filled with interviews and editorials with all those that defy current industry standard in the growing slow-fashion scene the magazine helps consumers make better and more ethical choices in a world consumed by fast fashion.
Having just raised all funds for its third issue via a Kickstarter campaign Ortega hopes to take advantage of the growing demand for distribution to spread her message about the need for major changes in the fashion industry. In addition to the print edition, Sumzine aims also to build an interactive community, with a lecture series, workshops and the ultimate goal of coordinating a Sumzine Fashion Week.
