Ayesha Barenblat, Founder, Remake

Passionate about where clothing comes from, who makes them and what their lives are like, Ayesha founded Remake, a 501(c)3 focused on the power of films, visual storytelling and immersive journeys to create a conscious consumer movement. Remake’s stories appeal to the hearts and minds of millennial consumers to advocate for the human beings who make our clothes in factories around the world. Ayesha loves to ask: “If you see her, meet her, get to know her, will you care about her – knowing that she is the same age as you, with hopes and dreams that are no different?” She wants every consumer to recognize how powerful they are, that every purchase matters and directly impacts the fierce and hard working women behind our fashion. Together we can #remakeourworld. With a Master’s Degree in Public Policy, Ayesha has spent the last decade working with brands, governments and nonprofits to improve the lives of makers in global supply chains.
