In this paper, we focus on discursive responses which emerge in the backstage of globalised ecopreneurship industries during the process of identity formation. The focal organisation is ModaFusion, a young international fashion organisation, based in Rio de Janeiro. The central question of the paper is how the concept of ecopreneurship is enacted in the everyday life of the ethical fashion organisations and how this materialises in terms of cultural practices, in particularly coping narratives and (micro) stories. The aim of the paper is to contribute to understanding of emerging sustainability industries and to help improve ecopreneurship managerial practice. The paper is based on a current PhD project on narratives related to the ethical fashion industry. Copyright © 2011 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.
