Brooke Summers & Ashley Hollis, Cotton Australia | The Future of Australian Cotton

View descriptionShare

I’m thrilled  to kick off Season 5 by welcoming Brooke Summers and Ashley Hollis from Cotton Australia.

Cotton Australia is the peak representative body for the Australian cotton growing industry. 

Brooke currently leads Cotton Australia's work to connect the credentials of the Australian cotton industry with stakeholders throughout the textile supply chain.  

Brooke has three decades of experience in strategic communication, marketing, project management, community and stakeholder engagement and is a passionate advocate for sustainability, natural fibres and Australia’s cotton farmers.

Ashley is the Brand Relationship Manager at Cotton Australia. With 20 years’ experience in retail, fashion, education, and stakeholder engagement Ashley facilitates brand and industry business development and supply chain interaction to drive demand for Australian cotton.

Ashley’s in-depth knowledge and network within the Australian cotton and wool industry including sustainability and supply chain development has enabled her to pioneer several successful collaborations, projects, programs, and educational content across the supply chain, from farm to fashion.

This was a dynamic discussion that shone a light on:

  •   The Australian Cotton To Market Strategy 
  •   Supply Chain Solutions
  •   Sustainability, Circularity & Traceability
  •   WHY brands should consider including Australian Cotton in their ranges.
  •   The benefits of the Australian Cotton Mark & Global Sustainability Programs
  •   Education and Resources available to you
  •   The Australian Cotton Forum & Cotton Camp coming up in April.
  •   And an exciting roadmap of Powerful Strategies that Cotton Australia is undertaking.

We encourage you to connect with the team at Cotton Australia to explore how you can work together to inject Australian Cotton into your collections.
