Meet The R Collective Team

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

In the fast-paced world of business, there’s often a temptation to sprint ahead solo to bag quick wins. But our goal, to end fashion waste, is not a sprint. With 92 million tons of textile waste generated every year¹, it’s more like a marathon. 

That’s why our dedicated team runs together.

Meet R Team

The R Collective is a formidable team of bold (and slightly bonkers) souls - covering expertise in circularity, design, production, marketing and finance - who are rolling their sleeves up to rescue, reuse and recycle fashion’s waste.

As our founder of both The R Collective and NGO Redress, Christina has dedicated her career to revolutionising the fashion industry. Her visionary leadership and foresight guides our strategic direction and fuels our shared passion for innovation.

Seerat breathes life into our mission, amplifying our message and broadening our influence.
