I love fashion and always have. At 12, I assigned my younger sisters articles for my personal “fashion magazine” that I typed up on glossy paper and filled with collages made from the pages of real fashion magazines. Add into the mix a slim clothing budget, and shopping for secondhand clothing quickly became a part of my fashion routine. At the time, I had no idea that careers in sustainable fashion existed. So, what great luck when I found my job at Crossroads!
But I haven’t been alone in this good fortune. Many, many others started their sustainable fashion careers at Crossroads since we debuted our first store in 1991. Quite a few have even grown their careers considerably here (It’s not an urban legend that the company’s first employee is now our Chief Retail Officer!).
If you’ve been dreaming of your own sustainable fashion career, especially now when the data on the environmental impact of fast fashion is so compelling, here are some Crossroads employee stories that we hope will inspire you to consider the careers we’re currently offering in sustainable fashion. Yep, you should join us!
