Kathleen Talbot is Director of Operations & Sustainability at Reformation.
Kathleen joined Reformation in 2014 to help further the brand’s mission to lead and inspire a sustainable way to be fashionable, and challenge the status quo in the fashion industry. Reformation designs and manufactures limited-edition collections in its Los Angeles factory – the first sustainable sewing factory in the U.S. Kathleen directs sustainability programs that range from fabric sourcing, supply chain compliance, and operational efficiencies to make beautiful styles at a fraction of the environmental impact generated by most fashion brands. Kathleen also works on customer-facing campaigns and services to raise awareness around the impact fashion has on the environment, and how Reformation offers sustainable solutions.
Prior to joining Reformation, Kathleen worked as a Sustainability Officer for a liberal arts university and as a National Science Foundation consultant for public school districts to design and implement sustainability programs across curriculum, campus operations, and community-engagement.
Kathleen holds bachelor’s degrees in Global Development, Latin American Studies, and Economics from Seattle Pacific University, and received her MA in Sustainability from Arizona State University’s School of Sustainability.
