Milena Alexandrovna Eva Marchetti-Kozlov
Ambassador, Guadalajara, Mexico
Milena is a sustainable fashion designer based in Guadalajara, Mexico, and originally from Northern California. She is currently launching her brand, MARCHETTI Sustainable, in the U.S and Mexico.
After going to university for both fashion merchandising and advertising and strategic communication, Milena found herself torn between her love for fashion and her concerns about industry practices. After researching and understanding the true cost of clothing, she could no longer pursue a career in the field without taking a more responsible route.
Milena is driven both by a deep concern and awareness to build a better world through conscious consumption. She is ecstatic to join the Remake team and be part of a community of sustainable fashion advocates.
“Empathy is nothing without action. We must refuse to buy into the hype that our needs or desires are more important than someone else’s humanity or well-being. There are real, serious consequences for each and every item we purchase. Our choices matter.
As a designer, I feel passionately that if new clothing is being created, it absolutely must be designed around the sustainable materials or practices available to us. In my case, it was a huge struggle to find authentically sustainable options, but I felt I had no other choice if I wanted to create this collection.
Fashion is such an important industry and has the ability to create and empower a movement that has a tangible impact on both people and the planet from within. There is so much to be done and I am honored to be part of a group of like-minded individuals working to make fashion a force for good.”
