As of January 1, 2018, Jay Marroquin will be limiting his fashion work to those that operate in a responsible and ethical manner.
Companies, which are not exploiting workers in 3rd world countries. Companies that practice sustainable fashion. Companies that recognize the negative impact of the ‘system’. The system of micro-seasons which solely for pure profit, creates so much unnecessary waste and misery for countless laborers.
