Klarissa Bietz believes fashion can change the world with green and ethical sourcing, fair labor practices, and inclusive model casting. And she's not waiting until after college to prove it! Enjoy the talk with so much style, it has its own fashion show.
Klarissa Bietz is a Senior Management and Marketing double major graduating in June 2016 from La Sierra University. Klarissa believes in using fashion as a way to empower all people using green and ethical sourcing, fair labor practices, and inclusive model casting. She founded a website, The Modish Iconoclast, as a way of working towards these objectives and often features driven, passionate women who are pursuing an education or who have started their own businesses.
Klarissa is the 2016 President of REVO, an organization that throws charity events to raise money for different causes each year. The finale fashion show each spring aims to use music, art, and talented designers to promote a sense of community and healing on the local and international levels.
