Hilliary developed the idea for Future & Fauna during her travels to Guatemala, while seeing the beautiful, handcrafted products and meeting the women behind the designs. For her, it created a connection one doesn't receive when shopping online or buying fast fashion, and she wanted to share that same experience with others. With nearly 10 years in the retail and fashion industry, Hilliary also understood how harmful consumerism is to the environment. She is currently enrolled in graduate courses in Sustainability and Ethical Fashion to ensure that Future & Fauna is not part of the problem but rather an opportunity to share knowledge and create awareness of ways we can generate positive change for the planet and women.
In addition to founding Future & Fauna, Hilliary is a yoga instructor, avid traveler, book lover and event executer working with socially responsible companies and non-profits.
