    At this edition of our Idealists Quarterly drinks & talks event, we will focus on FASHION – jointly with the NGO Fashion Revolution.

    April marks eleven years since the Rana Plaza collapse – a tragedy that killed thousands of textile workers. It brought global attention onto how immensely the fashion industry exploits people and planet. Since then, Fashion Revolution has been organising the world’s largest fashion activism movement.

    Together with our speakers, we will explore:

    What is fashion’s purpose in the 21st century? Who is it serving? How can we ensure it is inclusive and sustainable?

    And how can we spark local community action that is globalintersectional and inclusive – in relation to the production of textiles, global supply chains, fashion as an artistic form of expression, and much more.
