Gordon, Caroline
Part presentation, part Q&A, FIT's "Faces & Places in Fashion" lecture series is an opportunity to connect students and the public alike to the pulse of the fashion industry in an open and conversational setting.
Kerry Docherty is the co-founder and chief impact officer for Faherty, a family brand all about great quality, legendary comfort and good vibes, fueled by purpose and leaving the world better than we found it. Faherty recognizes the impact that the fashion industry has on our planet and we are on a mission to change the status quo. We realize the amount of waste and environmental destruction the industry creates and we are committed to making thoughtful and intentional decisions. Through the use of recycled and renewable fabrics, smart supply chain decisions that lower carbon emissions, less toxic chemicals, dyes and finishes and circularity initiatives,we aim to ensure that Faherty is an industry leader in lessening environmental harm.
A lawyer with a background in human rights and mindfulness, Kerry uses Faherty's platform to create community and conversation through the event series, Sun Sessions, which spotlights good people doing good work. She loves to write, and her first children's book will be published by Flamingo in 2022. She and her husband, Alex (whom she met in college), live in Brooklyn with their two kids.
