#areyourepresented, Transparency, Sustainability and Brexit: Fashion Roundtable On Tour This Summer At UK Festivals.
Fashion Roundtable took to the Sunday Papers Live stage at Citadel Festival on Sunday with a panel discussion #areyourepresented on ethnic representation in the fashion industry (currently at 9%). Karen Binns our Fashion Expert was joined by Frederica Boateng a fashion academic, Rahemur Rahman and menswear designer and celebrity stylist Karen Williams. Chaired by Tamara Cincik, the panel explored the concrete ceiling facing talent from diverse backgrounds across the fashion industry. With London now at 30% BAME residents and the rest of the UK at 13%, it is clearly a timely conversation. #areyourepresented will be at Wilderness Festival on 5th August for Sunday Papers Live with Dr Royce Mahawatte from Central Saint Martins, our Retail Expert Bev Malik, Rahemur Rahman and Isabella Silvers from Hearst Publishing.
Next Monday 23/07, Fashion Roundtable are hosting two panel discussions, chaired by Tamara Cincik for PureLondon at Olympia. One on transparency and fashion with speakers including our sustainability expert Anna Fitzpatrick, as well as Eszter Kantor our EU Expert, and Jodi-Muter-Hamilton from podcast Black Neon Digital. Our other panel discussion will be on Brexit with speakers including luxury brand consultant Frances Card, Alistair Knox from ASBCI as well as Eszter and Samuel Nicholls from our team.
