Can We Fix Our Relationship With Our Clothes?

Whilst there have been positive steps towards integrating sustainability into the production stages of the fashion industry, these are negated by increasing levels of consumption in the United Kingdom. In this talk Sarah will explore ways through education, grassroots campaigns, collaborations, creative interventions and community engagement that we can address the over-consumption and end of life of clothing to be part of the solution.
