The HAPPENS Ethical Fashion Events
There is no denying that ethical or sustainable fashion is increasing in awareness with growing media coverage and high street brands focussing on parts of the issues.
However, the media coverage can be fleeting or superficial with top-line sound bites. It feels as if there is a lack of clarity for many shoppers especially in a UK market dominated by large high-street chains. In other words, there’s an information gap for consumers and industry insiders alike who are looking to reduce the negative impact their actions have.
That’s why we’re organising a series of ethical fashion events to offer:
• In-depth information on the impacts of the fashion industry
• Practical advice on what to look for and how to make different choices
• Ideas on how to make the most of your wardrobe
• An opportunity to be inspired and empowered
