Embracing Sustainability to Kick-start your Fashion Career

Sustainability can often feel like a passing trend in the industry. It can also be incredibly frustrating when you enter an industry full of passion and energy to disrupt it, only to find you feel like you have to compromise your morals to pay the bills.

This panel discussion will be compiled of several professionals from different jobs in the fashion industry who specialise in sustainability and feel it has moved their career in a positive direction. It will explore the challenges of working in sustainable fashion, how to become an expert in your area of passion, spotting the gaps in the sustainable fashion job market to stand out in, and how to launch your own sustainable fashion business.


The panel will be hosted by Olivia Pinnock, founder of The Fashion Debates.
