Fab City Forum – Fashion and Textiles focus

The Fab City team are delighted to invite you to join the next Fab City forum. Focusing on the Fab City priority of production this forum’s theme is ‘Fashion and Textiles’. We have invited three fantastic speakers to share their experience and project work round sustainable fashion and fashion as a circular economy. In an industry where fast fashion and a disposable culture rule, we ask how can we influence and create systems, processes and behaviours that make for a more sustainable industry?

If you are working or interested in fashion, circular economy, climate change, sustainability, community action, local production this event is for you. It is an opportunity to hear from amazing, progressive projects and network with other likeminded people to remind ourselves of all the Fab work taking place in the City.

SPEAKERS

Heather Martin – UN – MAKE & RE – CLOTHE: Shaping the Local Circular Economy

Vicky Putler – A Local Linen from Field to Fabric – Reviving the Flax Industry in SW UK

Abigail Eaton – Closing the Loop: Redesigning Fashion’s Future
