SEMINAR, 6:30pm
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.

Clare Lissaman, Chair
Nicholas Watson, Jungle Berry
Aurélie Dumont, Veja
Andrea Fasanello, Moda Fusion

Alongside the seminar, there will be a marketplace featuring suppliers, leading brands and support organisations working with and from Latin America. This will provide you with a practical application of the topics discussed throughout the seminar, using the marketplace as an exhibition for direct case studies.

Bottletop, Favela, Veja, Jungle Berry, Amazon Sandals, Paramo (TBC), Mumo, ModaFusion, Hug (TBC), Samples of various brands

EFF are excited to announce that Jungle Drum Magazine will be joining our list of exhibitors at tomorrow’s event!

Jungle Drum specialises in Brazilian culture in the UK. Their main objective is to represent Brazil on its many levels without resorting to the usual clichés, and emphasises on aspects that are usually not addressed by the general media.

I hope you will all agree it will be great to have a company exhibiting who specialises in the culture Brazil has, and knows the opportunities this culture can create for UK fashion brands.

This event sounds awesome (as so many others do that I am seeing posted on the Ethical Fashion Forum), but I live in the US and can't quite make it to the UK for these! Is there a similar or sister organization to this one in the US? Or are any of your seminars available as webinars or for post-event viewing at any time? I'm in the earliest stages of my designing of backpack purses, but I want to make sure I do it right from the beginning. Thank you!
