Dressing better is so much more than what we wear. Imagine if our clothes had power. How could our fashion choices help to improve our mental health? How can our outfits empower women? What if the fabrics we choose could help clean up our waterways? What if the most beautiful clothes were also the best for people, animals and nature? Fashion is transforming and we have invited the trailblazers at the forefront of this regeneration to help us imagine dressing better.
With guest speakers Dörte de Jesus, Betsy Reed and others.
