When professional soccer player Jordan Wilkes was 20 years old, he asked himself if his wardrobe reflected his personal values - and his answer was a resounding ‘no’! He refers to it as “giving passive consent to the ill’s of the world through your personal consumption”.

What followed is a quite remarkable story. We chat to this young and inspiring entrepreneur about his journey into ‘slow fashion’ and how he’s turned it into a budding empire.

“In the long-term, I want Stride to become an Amazon-Esque marketplace for Australians to buy anything and everything they want, but with the peace of mind knowing that they are supporting ethical and sustainable companies making the world a better place.” - Jordan Wilkes.
