Karri Ann Frerichs
CEO at Circular Fashion LA
Karri has been a fashion industry entrepreneur, innovator and professor since 2005. Working in retail, wholesale, manufacturing, product development, education, and now in circular business models, Karri has seen and researched the devastating effects of the global fashion industry first hand. Because she is first and foremost an environmentalist who happens to work in fashion, Karri is applying her skills in the industry to help solve its systemic problems, including pollution, labor exploitation and waste. Circular Fashion LA was founded to rethink the entire production process and supply chain to give customers a truly circular option to solve their wardrobing needs at a price that most can afford.
