Clara Sharma grew up in France where she studied international law and started her career as a lawyer. Her job led her to NYC where she worked for a few years and completed a Masters in Human Rights at Fordham University, School of Law.
She worked on several research projects on Women's Rights in partnership with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights at the United Nations, as well as projects involving Corporate Social Responsibility. As she focused her work in the fashion industry in particular, she was exposed to the devastating consequences of the clothing industry on Human Rights and the environment.
In December 2017 she founded Iconable, an online platform dedicated to sustainable fashion. Iconable celebrates brands that are changing the fashion industry by combining sustainability and style.
In the Fall 2018, she launched Iconable Consulting. Iconable Consulting is committed to assisting fashion brands in implementing sustainable and ethical practices as well as communicating and marketing their environmental and social commitments.
