Three members of Patagonia's product development team have been selected as Guest Designers for The Fashion Show 2018 and will speak on the company's history and business practices, including the challenges of using sustainable materials in apparel manufacturing.

Rebecca Green Shank has worked in research and development at Patagonia for 30 years, and in her current position as Product Developer for Men's and Women's Sportswear she travels frequently to the company's international factories. She will be joined by fit specialist Kena Gonzalez Todd, who's been with Patagonia for 22 years, and product designer Sarah Darnell. Patagonia is a maker of high-performance outerwear whose mission to protect and preserve the environment is at the core of its business operations.
