Right now Brazil is taking great strides in relation to fair trade and environmental impact reduction initiatives and is becoming an important market for designer fashion.
The next Ethical Fashion Forum seminar focuses on the specific challenges and opportunities related to sourcing fashion products from Latin America, with a focus upon Brazil.
With case studies and first hand accounts from brands and practitioners, the event will give an insight into why people source from Latin America, systems to solve & overcome challenges a business may face and how businesses have maximised benefits to communities and minimised environmental impact.
