Just another pretty face, hardly. Just because she’s a model doesn’t mean she doesn’t have an extremely sharp mind behind the facade. When she went into the modeling industry, she knew what she was about.
“Summer Rayne Oakes was researching toxins in sewage sludge, identifying aquatic insects, rocking n’ rolling in rainforests, and mapping invasive species when she was struck with the idea that the fashion industry might be a good venue to disseminate environmental awareness. She is a graduate of Cornell University with degrees in Environmental Science and Entomology and is a PCCW Women’s Research Scholar, Udall environmental scholar, National Wildlife Federation Fellow, and PERC Environmental Fellow. She works internationally on a range of environmental programs, mainly related to sustainable development and design and reforestation and youth action.”
“She is also Founder of SRO, LLC and the Co-founder/CEO of Source4Style – a B2B marketplace that allows designers – both fashion and interior – to search, compare and purchase more sustainable materials from around the world.” -(from her Bio)
And on top of all of that, she somehow still makes the time to come play dress up with us all in the name of sustainable fashion. She is a lady through and through and you can tell just by the way she wears the dress!
Will she be your Favorite Style???
Here’s a little peek at Summer playing dress us with the Bright Young Things at Cobblestones…
