Emma Mcilroy is the Co-founder and CEO of Wildfang: a clothing brand based in Portland Oregon whose mission is to rethink gender norms and how they show up in fashion. (She’s also proudly Norn Irish). In today’s episode we talk about:
  • Finding a pre-historic fossil as a kid
  • Landing dream jobs with the Premier League and Nike
  • The big problems she noticed in the fashion industry (why she started Wildfang)
  • And the ridiculous entrepreneurial rollercoaster she’s been on over the last few years
