Episode 10: Dean Jones and Audrey Khaing-Jones

Climate-conscious husband and wife team Dean Jones and Audrey Khaing-Jones are co-founders of GlamCorner, an online designer fashion rental service – described as the Netflix of fashion. After 10 years of running their first sustainably focussed fashion business, they continue to dedicate their lives to reducing the environmental impact of the industry.
