Visual Storyteller, Climate Activist, & Re:Wild Ambassador, ADIMAY

“Understanding the interconnected nature of oppression will help us realize the interconnected nature of liberation.”

Aditi Mayer is a multi-hyphenate storyteller whose mediums include film, photography, journalism, and creative direction. Her work has blossomed into a storytelling studio weaving narratives that span fashion & culture. Since 2014, Aditi’s thought leadership has examined the fashion industry through a lens of decolonization and intersectionality, creating a robust speaking resume that spans fashion weeks globally to academia.

In April 2022, Aditi was a part of a group of ambassadors who joined Re:wild in LA to learn more about connecting with the wild and how we can all take the magic of rewilding into our own hands.

In 2014, Aditi had her start in the sustainable fashion movement after learning about the Rana Plaza Factory Collapse. Seeing the fashion industry’s disproportionate affect on people of color globally, Aditi looked to understand the historical and sociopolitical underpinnings that allow the fashion industry to function in a colonial manner, rooted in exploitation and extraction of both labor and the natural environment. Since then, she has become a voice in the larger sustainability movement, approaching her work from multiple domains: from grassroots organizing in Downtown LA’s garment district to educating folks on the importance of diverse perspectives.
