I consider sustainable fashion to be where all creators of a garment (including mother earth) get justice at every level. I wanted to be a sustainable designer, simply because I couldn’t possibly imagine creating things in any other way. I strongly believe that no greater good can be attained by harming anything, anyone or the planet. - Debaditya Das Barman
