Fashion Question Time is a powerful platform to debate the future of the fashion industry during Fashion Revolution Week.
This year’s theme, ‘Rights, Relationships and Revolution’ is incredibly pressing in our current global socio-political context. Human rights and the rights of nature are interconnected and interdependent. We need a revolutionary shift in our relationships with each other, with our clothes, within fashion supply chains, and with the natural world, for our own prosperity and wellbeing, and for the health of our earth, rivers and oceans. Growing numbers of people are radically reassessing what’s meaningful in their lives and starting to reimagine the values at the essence of a new fashion system.
On the panel, we'll be joined by:
Nicole Rycroft, founder and executive director of Canopy.
Nazma Akter, a Bangladeshi trade unionist, founder of AWAJ Foundation and Sommilito Garments Sramik Federation.
Lara Wolters, a Dutch politician and member of the European Parliament
Dr Vandana Shiva, an Indian author, scholar and environmental activist.
Sunny Dolat, a stylist, production designer and creative director, co-founder of The Nest Collective and member of Fashion Revolution Kenya.
The panel will be chared by Baroness Lola Young, co-chair and cross-bench peer for the UK's All-Party Parliamentary Group: Ethics and Sustainability in Fashion. It will follow a BBC Question Time format and will discuss projections, ideas and best practice as well as answer a diverse range of questions submitted by participants and members of the public. If you wish to submit a question please email it alongside your full name to RSVP@fashionrevolution.org.
Hosted in collaboration with the V&A Museum with an opening speech by Tristram Hunt.
