WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF ETHICAL FASHION? WHY?

Who is responsible? Is it the consumer or is it the brand?

Or is this the old question rehashed “Which came first the chicken or the egg”? Moreover, does the answer matter?

Can we attain Perfection? Or do the goalposts keep moving? How do we reward Progress?

Do we only praise those who are kicking goals in every aspect of “ethical” or do we encourage the brands that are shifting up the continuum and making a more significant impact as they move? How are some of the big name brands shifting? And what’s driving them? And what’s driving consumers to choose?

Join us for a stimulating conversation with Sonya Rand, Group Sustainability & Ethical Sourcing Manager, Cotton On Group, and Sandra Capponi, Head of Business Development & Co-Founder, Good On You – with facilitator Matt Perfect, Impact Spender, as they discuss some of the challenges, opportunities and trends facing the fashion sector.
