The Future of Fashion

Why do we feel we need cheaper clothes at the expense of poorly paid and treated workers? How can we stop fast fashion using and abusing the planet’s natural resources? We searched for answers to these and other pressing questions at our afternoon series of thought-provoking talks and debates around the Future of Fashion at the University of Brighton’s Sallis Benney Theatre. Guest speakers and panellists included Orsola de Castro, Co-founder of Fashion Revolution, Carol Rose, Technical Advisor for WRAP, Leah Borromeo, factual filmmaker, Christine Gent, Executive Director or World Fair Trade Organization Africa and Clare Lissaman, Ethical and Fair Trade Consultant.
