Jacket Required Appoints Phil Wildbore As Sustainable Ambassador

by MR Magazine Staff

Contemporary menswear and streetwear trade show Jacket Required has announced the appointment of Phil Wildbore as its new sustainable ambassador. Wildbore has made a name for himself in the industry as a pioneer of sustainable and ethical fashion, launching his first conscious brand Road in the 1980s after working with a family-run factory in Leicester and becoming aware of the poor conditions that existed in a major part of the fashion industry. Fast forward to 2016 and he launched Monkee Genes, a label which became the first jeans brand to be awarded the Soil Association certification. Commenting on the news in a statement, Wildbore said: “I am proud of my role for Jacket Required with the ability to continue my campaign to promote sustainability and ethical manufacturing. I’m very excited about this opportunity and very much looking forward to my next adventure in this ever-evolving industry.” Read more at Fashion United.
