Join us on Monday, April 1 at oneC1TY for an interactive event that will include Nashville's first fashion-focused discussion on sustainability. Our panel of industry leaders - Chrissy Fogerty, Fauxgerty; Barrett Ward, ABLE; David Prentice, OnPoint Manufacturing and fashion designer Van Hoang, our 2018 Nashville Fashion Forward Fund recipient - will share their insights on how to turn ideas into action and experiences with sustainability. Transparency, business ethics and brand missions impact both people and the planet. Sustainable initiatives are top of mind for today's consumer and the fashion industry, but many of us don't understand what we can do to contribute to the ecosystem. From labor rights, human rights or the environment, we are each a key variable to help correct the problems that currently exist. Organizations like Fashion Revolution and this event will share how we can change the model, material and mindset.
There is a limited number of tickets available to attend the Sustainable Summit which will include include interactive pop-up experiences by the panelists and Fashion Revolution, who spearheads the global movement Fashion Revolution Week (April 22 - 28), refreshments and bites from Pastaria and the live-stream panel conversation. Educational sponsor, Middle Tennessee State University, will facilitate and produce the live-stream which will be aired on Nashville Fashion Week's Facebook and InstaStories at 6:30 p.m. on the day of the event.
Fern Mallis, the creator of New York Fashion Week, will moderate the conversation to discuss tangible ways that these businesses are addressing sustainabiity and how we can assist in making a difference in our world. Nashville businesses are leading the way with sustainable solutions. It's time for the rest of us to join in.
This community-wide event will include Pop-Up Shops and educational material from Fauxgerty, ABLE, OnPoint Manufacturing and Fashion Revolution prior to the panel discussion and a photo booth from Hi-Fi Media to commemorate the event.
