Peri and I talk about the shifts in New Zealand apparel over the last two decades, how face masks have helped spread the brand values of Untouched World and what sustainable fabrics are bringing to garment innovation including what we can expect next.

We also talk about why new apparel in every new Instagram post has become uncool and how the Untouched World foundation is helping young adults to find the leader within at just the right time.
