This September we shot an inspiring editorial with Brana Dane titled “Can We Be As One.”

Brana Dane is known in New York City for her role as a model and activist. As one of the first Pildora Pioneers, our conscious influencer program, Brana takes the traditional fashion industry by storm, promoting ethical and sustainable standards with her different media platforms. Brana is a true believer in mindfulness, she explained, “learning is my religion, not jumping ahead, but really sitting through your thoughts, feelings, and experience while allowing yourself to be where you are.” Rooted in Canada, Brana was raised in an environment surrounded by nature and to her sustainability means “a circular system of regeneration just like the balance nature inherently provides itself.”

This editorial was produced to explore and appreciate the beautiful and peaceful moments of the natural world we live in. To do so we featured two of our Pildora shop sustainable designers Amalya Meira and Mana Made Jewelry and styled them with vintage pieces. Amalya Meira is a zero-waste brand that repurposes and upcycles vintage items, and Mana Made Jewelry is hand-made from recycled metals and locally sourced materials in New York and California.
