You’re Invited: “The Future of Fashion #2: Sustainable Practices in the Age of Fast Fashion”, presented by Be Social Change, Wednesday, November 14th, 6:30-9:30 p.m.

Co-Co Mat, 49 Mercer Street, SoHo

From Carmen Artigas, sustainable fashion designer, consultant and educator:

I’m moderating a panel 11/14: The Future of Fashion #2: Sustainable Practices in the Age of Fast Fashion.  Can fashion be a catalyst for social change? Are the concepts of sustainability, environmental awareness and conscious decisions supported by an industry known for fluctuating trends and over-consumption? How can our collective decisions about style help to make the world a better place?  Come learn how the fashion industry is tackling these challenges by designing consciously, sourcing sustainably and manufacturing locally. Discover how fashion and social innovation are merging to create value-added practices and transforming relationships between suppliers, retailers and consumers. Find out fashion’s role within the sustainability movement and how people in the industry are developing innovative ways to create long-term impact.

Amazing speakers, hosted by Coco-mat in Soho, in collaboration with Be Social Change!
