Our first Ethical Fashion Symposium!
Last week, a selection of influential speakers gathered to discuss sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry for the first Ethical Fashion Symposium at the Condé Nast College. The focus of the symposium was to look at current models that promote positive change for both individuals and businesses as well as how the industry can help to empower communities, support the economy and preserve tradition, culture and skills.
