Back by popular demand, we are now taking bookings for our Discussion on Ethical Fabrics.
Date: Thursday, 26 July 2012: 11am-12am
Venue: THECUBE, Studio 5, 155 Commercial Street, London E1 6BJ
The session is ideal for those who want to learn more about ethical textiles, particularly those keen to introduce them into their designs and collections.
With the growing demand for environmentally and socially beneficial fabrics, this unique, hour long discussion not only allows attendees the opportunity to physically feel a huge variety of ethical textiles, available to purchase at both retail and wholesale quantities, but also offers the remarkable opportunity to pick the brains of a Fashion and/or Textiles Master consultant, usually valued at hundreds of pounds.
With over ten years of fashion and textiles experience, the consultant will not only be able to offer advice on the move from “mainstream” to “ethical” fabric purchasing, but can also offer advice on the ethical fabrics suitable for fashion and interiors that match industry trends, how designers can begin to make their work more ethical and tips on sourcing from ethical textiles manufacturers.
Set in an intimate discussion format with a maximum of 10 people per group, attendees can talk openly with the Master consultant, whilst getting a tactile and visual understanding of ethical textiles through a plethora of fabric samples available. Over the course of the hour, you will be introduced to the terms and jargon associated with the ethical fashion and textiles industry and offered an insight into the variety of ways designers can be ethical through their fabric choices: from reclaimed, to fair trade, to organic, to recycled. Attendees will leave with a more informed sense of how design can avoid damaging the environment and harming the people involved in the manufacturing process.
- £20 per person for bookings made before 14th July 2012;
- £10 for Ethical Directory members. Find out how to join the Ethical Directory.
