Nina Lorenzen

Co-Founder Fashion Changers, Co-Author

Nina has been involved with fair fashion & sustainability since 2013. After studying literature, her career initially took her into the literary world before she co-founded Fashion Changers in 2018, where she is part of the management team and responsible for the chief editor of Fashion Changers magazine. With her work, Nina wants to make stories in the fashion industry more visible. Today, Nina only reads books for fun and still finds it funny to see the co-written Fashion Changers book “Fashion Changers – Wie wir mit fairer Mode die Welt verändern können” (Knesebeck) on bookstore shelves. In August 2024, her essay “Unlearn Mode” will be published in the anthology “Unlearn CO2” (Ullstein), in which she writes about how the fashion industry can overcome the fossil system. In addition to Fashion Changers, Nina has also been unsuccessfully trying to monetize her useless pop-cultural knowledge for years.
