MY MISSION IS…SOPHIA WANG ON THE FASHION INDUSTRY’S MUSHROOM LEATHER BOOM

My Mission Is… is a podcast series cohosted by Mission’s founder Karina Givargisoff, and singer-songwriter of the U.K. band Texas, Sharleen Spiteri.

This week’s My Mission Is… podcast guest is Sophia Wang, co-founder of the California-based startup MycoWorks, which can be partially credited with orchestrating the fashion industry’s mycelium (the root structure of the fungi) boom. Alongside her work making the fashion industry a more sustainable (and better) place through partnerships with the likes of Hermès, Wang is a seasoned academic (she has a Ph.D. in experimental American poetry) and heads up Brontez Purnell Dance Company.

In this week’s episode, Sophia talks with Mission founder and editor-in-chief Karina Givargisoff about her path to founding a biotech, how the fashion industry can transform itself, and the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
