Fashion Revolution presents: Fashion and sustainability – an incompatible couple?
Sustainability – we can’t seem to avoid this word lately, and with shopping hailed as a national hobby in Singapore, the spotlight’s slowly turning to the fashion industry.
But can fashion ever be sustainable? As sustainability inches towards the top of the agendas for many stakeholders, fashion brands are starting to ask what they can do to survive and remain relevant in a market that’s increasingly driven by values.
Join Fashion Revolution at our welcome chat, where we speak to global and local brands of all sizes about their sustainability journey and where we have an honest conversation on the sustainability conundrum in the fashion world.
We'll be chatting about
- the complex issues inherent within the fashion industry
- how brands of different sizes and different target markets are seeking to solve them
- the different ways brands can take action
Our speakers include:
