Marina Spadafora is an Italian ethical fashion designer who gained a reputation worldwide in the 1990s for her collections that featured sophisticated knits. She has also collaborated with labels such as Salvatore Ferragamo, Prada and Miu Miu and as Creative Director for fashion and accessories at AltroMercato, Italys oldest and largest Fair Trade group with over 300 stores.

Marina's work has always included a strong social and environmental focus, believing that ethics and aesthetics can coincide. In late 2014 she gave an important TEDx Talk in Como, Italy and in June 2015 she received the UN's Women Together Award at the United Nations in recognition for her work and promotion with artisans in developing countries. She has lectured and taught at Parsons School of Design and F.I.T. - Fashion Institute of Technology.

Jordan Stone is a well travelled award winning filmmaker who cannot sit still. He has been making feature films, documentaries, music videos and commercials for over 35 years.

He's always looking forward to the next adventure.

In July 2017, Marina and Jordan traveled to Tanzania with OIKOS, an Italian NGO to work with Maasai women and design a collection of leather bags and accessories. Enjoy the film...
