Vreni Jäckle

Co-Founder Fashion Changers, Fashion System Change Advocate, Author

What motivates you?
My dissatisfaction.

The best advice you have ever been given?
When you sit inside all day, you feel too big in relation to the space. That changes as soon as you venture outside.

What are you learning right now that you still have to get good at?
Patience. And tattooing!

What would you chance if you had the power to do so?
Decolonise the fashion industry and its power structures! And with it: living wages for all fashion industry workers, starting with the production of raw materials on cotton plantations.

Which superheroine power would you like to have?
A photographic memory would be handy!

Vreni Jäckle

Co-Founder Fashion Changers, Fashion System Change Advocate, Author

Vreni Jäckle has found herself at the intersection of fashion and media for over eight years. Coupled with an interest in sustainability and social justice, it’s no wonder that after studying media and communications and completing a traineeship, she soon became co-founder and managing director of Fashion Changers to combine all these passions.

Close to her heart, the project Fashion Changers wants to enhance the media world with a critical voice in fashion and also acts as a liaison for everyone who wants to better the fashion world with a cooperative approach.

Vreni is part of the management team at Fashion Changers and is also responsible for the creative direction.

Vreni loves vintage fashion, relentlessly honest feedback, good red wine and – despite the over-abundance – admires clothing collections like Iris Apfel’s.
