Eileen Fisher Wants You to Meet These Groundbreaking Women in Design, Fashion, and Sustainability

By Samantha Daly
The female-fronted Good Goes On campaign recognizes powerful, design-minded women who are inspiring the next generation.

Eileen Fisher started her namesake sustainable fashion brand in 1984 with one goal: to create beautiful, wearable clothing. For its spring/summer 2020 campaign, the team tapped Girlgaze photographer Heather Hazzan to shoot its Good Goes On campaign. The campaign recognizes talented women who are making a positive change within their communities that celebrate design, sustainability, and female leadership.

"Good Goes On centers around the idea that when women work together across generations, they have the power to affect positive change in the world. [We have] always believed in taking what’s good and passing it along," says the company. The campaign is natural extension of the company’s ethos, as it illustrates the all-important intersection of design, sustainability, and equality. By promoting capable, creative women who are tackling some of today’s toughest situations, Eileen Fisher hopes to inspire more female leadership and empowerment.

Photographer Heather Hazzan launched her career on Girlgaze, an innovative job platform that connects a global network of female and non-binary creatives with the world’s best brands. Her intimate, vulnerable portraiture is a perfect match to accurately capture the six groundbreakers below.

Slow Factory is a global nonprofit initiative working at the intersection of fashion, environmental impact, and human rights—engaging brands, scientists, policy makers, media, and communities through education and action.
