To mark International Women’s Day, the Indonesian Embassy and PAWA will host a panel discussion on “Ethical Fashion: more than just a trend”.
The fashion industry is one of the world’s most polluting industries with a poor track record of workers’ rights. The consumer’s embrace of cheap, fast fashion has compounded the damage. Ethical fashion rejects this model and aims to transform the design, sourcing, production and purchasing of clothes in a manner that benefits communities and reduces the impact on the environment.
Join us on March 5th for what promises to be an insightful discussion on a topic that effects all of us.
The discussion will be followed by a drinks reception. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by 2nd March.
