How Two Public Health Workers Launched A Clothing Label

View descriptionShare

Laura Thompson & Sarah Sheridan didn’t intend to build a fashion brand. But with a knack for marketing and a fire in their bellies to make a difference in the world, they created Clothing The Gaps.

Their dynamic fashion label aims to challenge racial stereotypes, promote cultural awareness, and start conversations about reconciliation.

This week, Laura and Sarah sit down with Elfy to discuss how their purpose drives profit - not the other way around - and the core reasons behind their success.

This episode of Lady Startup Stories is made in partnership with Airbnb.
