Sophie Dunster, Founder of Gung Ho
Sophie Dunster founded Gung Ho to put the meaning back into the fashion industry. Growing up living a low carbon lifestyle, sustainability was drummed into her from an early age. Following her drawing, Sophie started to illustrate these issues until it hit her that when on fabric (fashion), these became walking talking points about issues you care about - and never looked back. Gung Ho changes causes each year, campaigning around different environmental issues that need urgent attention. From Plastic Oceans to Climate Change, activism has never been so stylish.
