Interview: Colette Chretien, founder and principle designer at La Fille Colette

Recorded September 1, 2017 in Newton, MA  | Subscribe

Colette Chretien is the founder and principle designer at La Fille Colette, a boutique dress company. Though La Fille Colette started as a way for Colette to bring her dress-designing skills to market, it has grown to incorporate a strong ethical premise. Not only does Colette design dresses that are utilitarian–designed to be as comfortable and fashionable at work as they are for after-work drinks and a night out–she also uses materials and production practices which are eco-friendly and sustainable.

Kerry found Colette in Newton, MA. They talked fast and slow fashion, dress designing, and entrepreneurship.
