Please note: This is an online meeting- 7.00pm (London UK time)
Fashion is a fascinating industry. It is one of the main industries over history, other than food, that encompasses an equal range of specialities. If we talk fashion,the fibres, fabrics, clothing involved, then we have no choice but to also talk about environmental damage and pollution such as excessive mono-cultures, deforestation, ground water draining and poisoning. Also human-rights breaches such as child/slave-labour, carbon footprints, therefore global warming and climate change waste. Be it toxic waste, non-recyclable, non-biodegradable goods or diminishing space in land fills, social phenomena such as fashion bullying, consumerism and eating disorders. from agriculture over design, transport to waste management.
Fashion only though, fulfils both a basic need, clothing in this case and our natural instinct for grooming and beauty. This is the reason why it is so important to turn Fashion into a ethical industry. Organic cotton and 'No Sweat! campaigns are only the seeds of the change we really need.
Is there a way how we can plant the seeds of change into the fashion industry? And into the high street fashion shopper? .
