By Cora Hilts
Originally from the Maine countryside, Cora spent five years in Paris and New York City intermittently working in luxury fashion and studying Politics before ending up in London. It was there, during her Master's degree at King's College in Environmental Politics and Sustainability, that she had the idea for Rêve En Vert. To her, it seemed that the fashion industry could and should be a leader in ethics, the wellness of humankind and the planet. That being said, consumers should not have to sacrifice style for ethics. There emerged the idea for the company - an online retailer that would celebrate beautiful fashion that had only been made sustainably. She founded Reve En Vert as something of the "sustainable Net A Porter" four years ago and has been running the company from London ever since.
