To support the exhibition Fashion Footprints Sustainable Approaches, we are organizing a conference to explore further some of the areas we looked at in the exhibition…

The aim of ‘Fashion Transitions’ is to provide a platform for discourse around the areas of fashion, wellbeing, nature and enterprise. The conference will encourage delegates to think about how change can happen and look to successful models of change/transition, examining how these can be applied to the fashion industry and consumer behaviour. The speakers chosen represent areas from across a wide range of disciplines.

Confirmed speakers are:

Otto von Busch, Fashion Hacktivist from Göteborg University (Sweden)

Alastair Fuad-Luke, winner of the publishing category European Environmental Design Awards for The Eco-design Handbook.
