Is Fair Fashion a Feminist Movement?
Thu, April 27, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM BST
In a Fashion Revolution Week special, The Fashion Debates launches another engaging discussion in partnership with social enterprise Free_D.
Looking at the parallels between the ethical fashion movement and feminism, we’ll explore whether they champion each other’s causes or go against them, whether they can join forces to be more powerful and whether fairly made fashion needs to brand itself as feminist.
