Sustainability & Representation Balanced Fashion x FAUBOURG July 18, 2018
The sustainable fashion movement is at work to reshape the industry around more ethics, transparency and responsibility. Yet, the general perception is still that sustainability is a privileged white person's thing. Is sustainable fashion suffering from a race problem? Can real change happen if we're failing to make sustainability accessible to all and include people of color in the conversation? Are brands missing out on an opportunity to reach a wider audience? For this event created in collaboration with Balanced Fashion, Priscilla Debar will moderate a panel conversation with industry insiders around the opportunity for ethical brands to disrupt the status quo. With the support of eBay New York. Get tickets.
