Press Release on our Upcoming Sustainability and Geopolitics Event on 23/05

Date: 23/05
Next Wednesday, 23/05/2018, Fashion Roundtable are organising an event on Sustainability and Geopolitics.

Why Sustainability and Geopolitics?
Fashion Roundtable promote an inclusive, positive fashion industry: open, sustainable and accessible to all. It has become increasingly clear to all of us inside the business, that living in an exclusive echo chamber is not communicating with others who are not watching from the front row. Not only is that making for increasing concerns at a lack of intersection, which goes to the heart of our work with politics and policy leaders, it also throws light on a lack of connection with wider communities and our fashion consumers and audiences.
Without transparency across supply chains and a joined up support for global manufacturers and designers, as the UK leaves the EU, we have to work to ensure the needs of the whole industry from a Bangladesh factory worker to a weaver on the English borders, are at the forefront of fashion consumption.
The link between fashion and policy is what Fashion Roundtable are here to change.

Tamara Cincik CEO and Founder of Fashion Roundtable says: "Real luxury for me means knowing that who made my clothes did so with dignity, fair wages and in safe conditions. It's no longer enough to have the best fabrics and the most original designs. For fashion to stay relevant as the consumer demand for sustainability grows, we need to see all brands and that means at the designer end as well as on the high street, whether they are a huge international or start up SME, make supply chain decisions which have this at the heart of their business strategy."
