Add to Calendar September 9 6:00 pm September 9 7:30 pm America/New_York Future of Sustainable Fashion

What will a sustainable fashion look like post COVID-19?
Can we emerge from our daily working from home sweatpants with greater intention and understanding of the impact that the world of fashion has on people and our planet?

The negative environmental impact of fashion is irrefutable. For example, did you know that 60% of all clothes will end up in an incinerator or landfill within a year of being produced (McKinsey, 2016)? This tendency toward fast fashion must come to an end, and we as consumers must understand that we have more power than we think in making an impact through our shopping decisions.

Positive change in the fashion industry is also poised to accelerate following the COVID-19 pandemic and the social justice movements of 2020. Brands can no longer remain quiet – they must take stands on issues and declare their values.

Join us during Fashion Week to hear from expert panelists regarding everyday practices we can all take on to promote sustainable fashion and the companies who are driving change in this field.

Join us to hear about:

Trends in sustainability
Positive brands in sustainable fashion
How to reduce your fashion footprint and increase awareness
What to look for when shopping
Innovative ideas for pressuring brands and establishing sustainable fashion as the norm
