ABOUT CASSANDRA

Cassandra Dittmer is an international sustainable brand consultant and fashion stylist. After years of international travel and work, Cassandra witnessed the increasingly negative impacts the fashion industry has on both the environment and our labor force who make everything possible. She is committed to aligning her fashion business and values—centered around transparency, inclusion, and community.

Cassandra immerses herself in eco-conscious living practices, products, and brands that challenge industry norms to build a more beautiful, sustainable world. Unpacking our carbon footprints is just the beginning.

We need to take a deeper look at our own ecological and social impacts on the world and the world we want to create for future generations.

The Leila Sweater Jacket

WHY I MADE IT

The Peggy Half-Zip Sweater

The Peggy sweater is named for my mom’s mom—a talented seamstress—and her relentless passion for knitwear. I love creating apparel that champions and celebrates the cultures and communities where our garments originated.

The Cindy Midi Dress

Named after my fearless and stylish mother - the Cindy is close to my heart. The striking, square neckline and statement sleeve are inspired by her. We truly imagined this piece together. Female trailblazers are my greatest inspiration.

The Leila Cropped Shacket 

The Leila is named for my dad’s mom who is known for her love of pockets with jacket and her ability to be ready for anything. These designs, just like the family-run factory that manufactures them, bring a timeless, cross-generational lens to modern fashion.

WE'RE GIVING BACK

Through 11/8/20, 10% of sales generated for Cassandra's collection will be donated to the Whitefield Foundation. We are donating to the #EndSARS movement in order to support our global community in their fight for justice and human rights. Cassandra and Public Habit are working towards a sustainable future for all and elevating voices that are too often left out of the conversation of tangible sustainability. Championing biodiversity and adding an intersectional approach to the fashion industry is a pillar of our collaboration.

We last visited the factory and met the owner, Sharon, in May 2019, when we did our assessment. The factory earned A rating for their high environmental and social standards.
