Nina Farran And Sophia Bush


Sophia Bush is an American actor and advocate. Bush is a member of the Director’s Guild of America and has starred in various television shows and feature films including John Tucker Must Die, Incredibles 2, One Tree Hill and Chicago PD. She recently appeared in the NBC drama This is Us and has joined the cast of the upcoming Hulu show, Love, Victor. Bush is deeply involved in activism and advocacy for girls' education and environmental justice, issues that she intends to address through her role as co-founder of Fashionkind. She serves as a global ambassador for Glamour Magazine’s the Girl Project, which helps girls around the world get access to secondary education. Bush co-founded and sits on the board for "I am a voter" where she campaigns and promotes awareness of registration tools while also encouraging all to use their resources to participate in the voting process. Last year, Bush launched a podcast called "Work in Progress," in which she interviews subjects who inspire her, including venture capitalist Arlan Hamilton, model and humanitarian Ambra Gutierrez, and best-selling author Glennon Doyle, about their personal and professional journeys.


Fashionkind CEO and founder Nina Farran has been a leader in fashion and impact since 2008, when she introduced humanitarian fashion brand OmniPeace to her fellow undergraduates at the University of Pennsylvania. Farran started Fashionkind as an educational blog about sustainability and style while working as a research analyst at Glenmede, where she also built and launched the company’s impact investing platform, which today represents at least $2bn of the firm's AUM. Fashionkind evolved into a technology platform that merges e-commerce with rich storytelling, featuring brands that qualify as "Impact Luxury." In addition to helming Fashionkind, Farran is the Board Chair of Power Up Gambia, a 501(c)3 that is transforming healthcare services in the Gambia through solar energy. She was one of ten entrepreneurs selected for Vital Voices' Global Ambassadors Program and was selected to participate in UBS’s Project Entrepreneur, a program to support female-founded companies. Farran has been featured in various fashion publications; has spoken on prestigious stages, such as MIT and InStyle’s How to Make it in Fashion; and was named one of Town & Country’s "New Modern Swans," the magazine’s list of influential, stylish and accomplished young women from around the world.
