The RSA sustainability network's sustainable fashion group recently organised an event which took place during the SS18 London Fashion Week in September.
The first annual Sustainable Fashion London symposium aimed to connect industry, organisations and leading researchers in fashion sustainability from across the UK with innovative talks and presentations, addressing the key themes of sustainable design, ethical production, retail and consumption, and education. The aim is to provide a platform for sustainable fashion during fashion week and create a discussion about how the fashion industry can implement sustainable solutions to address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of Production and Consumption.
RSA Fellows speaking at the event included sustainable fashion group lead Debbie Moorhouse- Certified Made in the UK, RSA Sustainability network founder, Susan Harris- Anthesis Group, Catherine Weetman- Re-think Solutions, Dr Paul Pritchard- Iken Associates, Talia Hussain- Ramnation, and Dr Natascha Radclyffe-Thomas- London College of Fashion.
The upcoming project the sustainable fashion group will now focus on is to publish an international journal for sustainable fashion. The journal will include industry insights and also act as a repository for the advancement of published research within fashion sustainability, creating a resource of updated information on the subject.
