About Common Threads

Let's rethink fashion, one conversation at a time. Our podcast embraces sustainability but never compromises on style, hosted by writer Ruth MacGilp and stylist Alice Cruickshank. In each episode, we break down the big issues, with the help of some of the fashion industry’s leading change-makers and thought leaders. We believe that fashion should respect both people and the planet, and we want to explore all the solutions we can draw upon to help build a better system.

With over 20,000 downloads since launching last year, we are proud of how our platform has grown. In 2021, we have been selected for Spotify Next Wave, funded through Young Scot Nurturing Talent, and shortlisted for the P.E.A Awards.
