Sport My Style With Jessica Clarke
Handy tips on catsuit confidence + the Mushroom Movement
There’s something incredibly down-to-earth about New Zealand model and entrepreneur Jessica Clarke.
Having graced runways in New York, London, Milan and more, Jess has been photographed by some of the best fashion photographers. She’s a self-professed “weirdo” but by that, we can only assume she means that despite her success, experiences and business savvy she likes to keep it real and be authentic, spending time in nature and being mindful, not getting caught up in the fan-fare of things too much.
Over lockdown found Mother Made with old high-school friend, Emily Blanchett after spending time reflecting on what was really important to wellness and to the environment.
Mother Made is their ode to the departure from Man-made, to products from Mother earth, striving to shine a light on the humble mushroom – a great healer, boosting immunity and reducing brain fog.
