Somers was born in Seaton, Devon in 1966 and attended Colyton Grammar School. She has a degree in Languages and European Studies from Westminster College, Oxford, and a Masters in Native American Studies from the University of Essex which presented her with the Alumnus of the Year Award in 2009. In 2016 she was named one of the most influential people in London in the Progress 1000 Awards.
Somers is founder of Fashion Revolution, a global movement which arose from the Rana Plaza garment factory disaster in Bangladesh on 24 April 2013. Fashion Revolution Day takes place globally on 24 April each year and in 2016 grew into Fashion Revolution Week. Somers organised roundtable debates at the House of Commons and the House of Lords on ethics, sustainability and transparency in the fashion supply chain including Fashion Question Time in February 2015 and April 2016 and 2017, and Ethical Fashion 2020:a New Vision for Transparency in June 2015. There are Fashion Revolution teams in 100 countries around the world.
Somers founded fair trade hat brand Pachacuti in 1992. Pachacuti was the first company to be certified under the World Fair Trade Organization Sustainable Fair Trade Management System, the first International certification of a fair trade, sustainable production process. The WFTO certification "guaranteed practices, procedures and processes that demonstrate social, economic and environmental responsibility throughout the supply chain". Pachacuti's products were labelled Certified Fair Trade by WFTO UK0001-2009 to 2012.
Somers piloted the European Union Geo Fair Trade project from 2009–12 which traced products from the straw to the Panama hat weavers. 60 social, economic, geolocalisation and environmental indicators tracked annual changes. The pilot project mapped the GPS co-ordinates of Pachacuti's 154 weavers' houses in Ecuador, the parcels of land where the Carludovica Palmata grows, and the co-ordinates of the associations who harvest and process the straw.
At London Fashion Week in September 2013, People Tree Ltd. and Pachacuti were the first brands globally to launch the WFTO Fair Trade Guarantee System label.
Somers speaks nationally and internationally on Fashion Revolution, fair trade, entrepreneurship, sustainability, fashion and certification. She lectures on cruise ships in Latin America and the Caribbean on textiles, traditional dress, artisan handicrafts, indigenous peoples and fair trade.
Somers wrote the introduction to "Fixing Fashion" which looks at the impacts of consumer culture's addiction to disposable fashion, published in 2015 by New Society. She is co-author of the book Working Ethically, which aims to help business owners find an ethical strategy which will benefit their suppliers, community and environment. She contributed a chapter to the book, published in 2014, Sustainable Luxury and Social Entrepreneurship
