Never before have we been so conscious of what we buy and its impact on the world. From the slow-food movement to sustainable fashion, we are all striving to be more mindful about what we eat and wear. Austin-based designer Miranda Bennett pretty much embodies this lifestyle with her eponymous line of naturally-dyed women’s wear. The rule-breaking designer chose to ignore the atypical, seasonal industry mold and launched her label in 2006 with small, carefully-designed capsule collections. In the years before she created her first line, she honed her POV while studying fashion design and art history at Parsons School of Design and Eugene Lang College in New York. Designed to be versatile, seamless additions to any woman’s wardrobe, her collections are streamlined with a penchant for clean lines and solid, earthy colors. Basically, every piece is completely seasonless and looks amazing year round. Everything is made-to-order in her studio using natural fabrics and plant-based dyes, and sustainability and ethical production are incorporated into every aspect of the brand. We talked to Miranda about design, sustainable production and the best part of her job.
