Panel Discussion for Fashion Revolution Week Lancaster

Activity: Talk or presentationPublic Lecture/ Debate/Seminar

28/04/2018

"With fast-fashion on the rise in the UK, it is easy to forget the source of our clothes and the effect that unsustainable fashion can have on our planet, both socially and environmentally.

Fashion Revolution Week is a global campaign from the 23rd-29th of April in memory of the Rana Plaza collapse, initiated by the Fashion Revolution movement (http://fashionrevolution.org/). It calls for a fairer, safer, cleaner, more transparent fashion industry with questions of ethics and sustainability at its centre.

This year, Lancaster University student, Thea Nygaard, has teamed up with local textile activist, Victoria Frausin, to bring Fashion Revolution Week to Lancaster. With a week of events, film screenings, and an inter-University ‘Love Fashion’ campaign, the co-organisers hope to give the people of Lancaster an opportunity to engage with the world of fashion from our hub in the North.

“We want to give people the chance to explore the fashion industry and show how we as individuals, as well as a collective, have the power to change it. With backing from the Pentland Centre we have worked hard to put on a week of events featuring a great line-up of guests. There is something for everyone, whether critic, curious or fashion revolutionist!”, explains Thea."
