Can fashion be anti-capitalist?

Thu, 07 Jul 2022, 18:30 (GMT)

Online event

As part of the 'What we need to do next' event series

The fashion industry swindles us all. Brands entice us to consume more by manipulating us to feel ugly, poor and worthless, and these sentiments lines the pockets of billionaires. Workers in Bangladesh put their lives at risk in dangerous factories, animals are tortured and toxic chemicals are spread just to keep this season’s collections fresh. Can this vast industry be redeemed?

In this event, the speakers will answer:

  • How is fashion political?
  • Who makes our clothes and how does it affect the planet?
  • How ethical is ‘ethical fashion’ and is it the answer?

This event is co-sponsored by Asia Floor Wage Alliance and there will also be an Q&A section at the end.
