FOUNDER, KRISTEN NUTTALL
In 2008 Kristen Nuttall completed her undergraduate degree at Colorado State University where she majored in Apparel Design and Production, focusing on couture craftsmanship and techniques. Following graduation, she moved to New York City. Working as an assistant designer for a large mass-market design house, she gained insight into the fashion industry, building experience in consumer trends, target markets and selling strategies. Kristen’s first introduction to ‘sustainable fashion’ came when she was selected as a finalist in a national competition to reduce waste in the production of outerwear.
In order to make a career change towards improvement, she applied for the first ever Masters program ‘Sustainability in Fashion’ in Berlin Germany. Her thesis focused on educating designers on the responsible use of fur and leather. She started Appso-Supro as a consultancy to help to educate designers on responsible material use and product creation for international Brands and Universities. Currently she is working as a Sustainability Designer for adidas in Germany.
