We're thrilled to be bringing Fashion Revolution back to Austin again this year! Last year's event was such an amazing time of learning and connecting - we can't wait to continue the momentum we built last year and to see new and returning faces!
We're calling on conscious Austinites to participate in the global movement that is demanding more transparency in the fashion industry.
Fashion Revolution was founded to radically change the way our clothes are sourced, produced and purchased after the Rana Plaza garment factory collapsed in Bangladesh, killing 1,138 and injuring thousands more on 24th April 2013. Since then, more than 100 countries and thousands of individuals have mobilized by asking one simple question: Who Made My Clothes?
What's on the agenda?
- Cory Skuldt, sustainability consultant at FWD Impact, Outerknown and Wearable Collections, will give a talk about why sustainability and ethics have become hot-button issues as fashion has become increasingly globalized and dispersed. Cory will also discuss ways that consumers can change the current status quo.
- A Q&A panel about local ethical fashion w/ Fashion Revolution ATX organizers, Jen Lewis, of Purse & Clutch, Kasi Martin of The Peahen and Meghan Williams of The Fair City Project
- An interactive marketplace with 11+ local, ethical brands. Shop & learn how they’re changing fashion for good.
- Networking, sips & bites
