FASHION REVOLUTION: THE RADICAL IMAGINATION OF ETHICAL FASHION  

Inspired by the global movement "Fashion Revolution" this panel will open up a conversation about the challenges and possibilities of producing and consuming fashion ethically. Bringing together leaders in the sustainable fashion movement, the panel will explore how designers can work to produce fashion in a way that is mindful of the concerns of waste, pollution, and fair labor practices.  It will pull back the curtain on the complexities of the global supply chain and give consumers of fashion a sense of the role we can play in creating an ethical and sustainable fashion system.

FASHION REVOLUTION: FABSCRAP POP-UP SHOP

The New York-based non-profit is part of a movement to end commercial textile "waste" and works to maximize the value of unused fabric. FABSCRAP collects and resells fabric, leather and other materials that would otherwise go to waste in the textile industry in New York. They will be in Baltimore for just one day to engage and educate our community with their popular pop-up shop!
