Why The Power of Influence?
Fashion Roundtable promote an inclusive, positive fashion industry: open and accessible to all. For this event, we discuss how is it one thing to get to the Front Row at fashion shows, or indeed the Front Bench in politics. However, what do you want to do with that position of power and privilege once you get there? Our event next week will chart not only the reasons why using one’s influence as a force for positive actions, but also an opportunity to share ideas and actions.
Speakers for The Power of Influence event are: -
Katharine Hamnett CBE, world renowned fashion designer, activist and the original Mrs. Tee, who invented the slogan t’shirt: “I’ve always believed in using media coverage to try to effect change. The reason I was able to do that and say whatever I wanted was because I was always my own boss. We launched my company in 1979 with 500 quid and stayed completely independent. If I wanted to do something, no one could stop me.”

Tamara Cincik, CEO and Founder of Fashion Roundtable said: “I am thrilled to be bringing a Fashion Roundtable event to the magical new The Shop at Bluebird in Floral Street. It’s a beautiful store, celebrating great fashion and style with a witty approach. Like many fashionistas, I worked hard to get a seat on the Front Row at catwalk shows; but what is also relevant is what we can do with that voice once we have achieved that influence. It’s one thing getting there, it’s another using it. That’s why I am so pleased to have these incredible speakers on board, all of whom have used their platforms to promote positive change. Am excited to share this event with you!”
