Hoffman talks about the challenges she faced while focusing on mindful consumption habits, while maintaining an ethereal, high-fashion vibe through her brand. This includes the designing and manufacturing using organic, recycled, and regenerated materials that produce the least amount of waste within each garment, and to create a circular model while being transparent with their supply chain partners.

With respect to circularity in the fashion value chain, she expresses her perspectives on taking small steps for longevity design principles, creating a garment take-back program, and supporting technology and innovation of textile recycling.
