The Future of Fashion: can the industry be in vogue and sustainable? Video
As fashion production processes get faster and faster, this event will ask: how can fashion brands and producers adapt their business models, in the face of growing demands to reduce the environmental impacts from the production, consumption and disposal of clothing?
Chaired by Dr Richard Perkins from the Department of Geography and Environment, a panel of speakers brought together by the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment explored how fashion now demands faster and faster production and consumption of clothing; new approaches being pioneered by brands to become more sustainable; and the role consumers play in shaping demand for a new type of fashion future.
The panel included:
- Deeti Vyas, Chief of Business Longevity at Global Bright Futures
- Helen Newcombe, Founder, Davy J Swimwear
- Olivia Pinnock, Freelance fashion writer and lecturer
- Roger Williams, Producer and Director, River Blue
