Challenge to be better

The speakers will consider the impact their respective industries have had on the Earth – as well as look at how it can improve in the future.

“Ethical is the new black,” says event organizers. “Fashion is one of the ultimate expressions of personality but historically the fashion industry has taken a heavy toll on the earth.

“At this event hear from people challenging this industry to be better for animals and the environment.”
