Summer Rayne OakesFounder of SugarDetoxMe
Summer Rayne Oakes has taken an unlikely career path, having parlayed her background in environmental science and entomology from Cornell University with a successful career as a fashion model. Most recently she launched SugarDetox.Me, a website offering guided Sugar Detox Programs; and will release her first cookbook in March 2017. She is passionate about helping people find healthier everyday choices—from what they wear to what they eat to how they live in their indoor environment. Over the last decade, she has modeled for labels that align with her values, authored Style, Naturally, co-founded award-winning materials marketplace Source4Style (now called Le Souk), served as a Discovery Networks correspondent, and has designed environmentally-preferable collections with Payless, Portico and Modo eyewear. She is an avid interior gardener in Brooklyn, living amongst over 500 plants, and will release a new project in Spring 2017 called Homestead Brooklyn, documenting country living in the urban environment.
