Kristy Caylor is an entrepreneur, fashion visionary, and humanitarian. Her newest brand, For Days, is the first apparel brand designed for circularity.
The brand rents sustainably made organic cotton T-shirts for prices as low as $12 a month for three shirts of different styles and colours. After customers are done wearing their shirt, they can send it back, where For Days will recycle it into brand-new T-shirts, creating an entirely closed-loop system.
Caylor’s first fashion label, Maiyet, is an ethical brand exclusively selling clothing made by self-sustaining artisans from all over the world world.
As president and creative director, Caylor presented Maiyet seasonally on the Paris runway, opened a store in New York, and sold to Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Saks.
Deeply committed to sustainability, Caylor was an early innovator with Gap’s Product (RED) and has served on the leadership committee for Cradle to Cradle’s Fashion +.
She is a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, where she was on the Lexus Fashion Initiative advisory board. She was honoured by the Voss Foundation as the 2014 Woman Helping Women Honoree and regularly participates with the UN Foundation. In 2016 Caylor was appointed to the World Economic Forum’s Global Future Council on Consumerism.
Since launching For Days in 2018, Caylor was named to the Glossy 50: Fashion Digital Front Runners and For Days was named as one of Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas.Tags: Circular Economy, fashion, sustainability, sustainable, sustainable fashion
