About me

Hello! I’m Ola – designer turned innovator. You can read here about sustainability practices of fashion brands and their responsibility for people and environment.

I run workshops, lecture and work with brands across sectors on responsible business and communication strategies. I’ve cocreated campaigns with: Buy Responsibly Foundation, Clean Clothes Campaign and Fashion Revolution. I’ve presented sustainable innovation theme during: Cracow Fashion Week, Eco Made, Short Waves and Docs Against Gravity.

I’ve created a short course for Lazarski University and Collegium Da Vinci and been published at Elle, i-D, Harpers Bazaar and AEffect – the Journal of Innovation Management.

I’m a graduate of Innovation Management at Central Saint Martins and Fashion Design at Lodz Academy of Fine Arts. This unique combination enables me to surf across topics of new technologies, responsible manufacturing and eco innovations in fashion and beyond.

In 2014 through a collaboration with local businesses I made a jacquard of recycled PET that became a core of my collection based on certified organic and recycled textiles.

I’m based in London and wouldn’t survive without yoga practice.
