About this event

Join us as we discuss the challenges and the future of sustainable fashion. Arnsdorf's designer, Jade Sarita Arnott, will be joined by a panel of speakers who bring a variety of perspectives and experience with sustainability.

It's a great time to be a part of the fashion industry, as it is prepared like never before to support sustainable business practices. In the past the high cost and low margins of wholesaling to retailers, customer mistrust of online sales, a focus on fast fashion, and the high costs of sustainable and ethical production have made sustainability almost an impossibility for labels. Until now.

There is a growing social interest in the impact of everything we consume. People are asking about supply chains, they want to be educated about how their clothes – and everything they buy – gets to them. These conditions have meant that many businesses are now able to maintain truly sustainable and ethical practices. This is not without its challenges, though, as the costs of sustainable processes are still high, and there are always advancements and improvements that can be made.

We want sustainable products to continue to improve, to be accessible and to become the norm in fashion. We are playing a small part in a big movement, but we feel that every small contribution can contribute to this change. The more people that join us, the easier, more affordable and accessible sustainable fashion will become.
