Moving Fashion Forward-From THE TRUE COST to a Sustainable Future

To kick off Fashion Revolution Week join us for a screening of The True Cost – A groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?

The film will be followed by a panel discussion of Chicago entrepreneurs focusing on the impact of sustainable sourcing, ethical labor practices and reducing waste. From lean manufacturing to capsule wardrobes, we’ll cover a variety of topics that will help impact the fashion industry in a positive way.

Moderated by: Mary Opalk, Fashion educator and human rights advocate

Our illustrious panel includes:

Hallie Borden – Milk Handmade

Xochil Herrera Scheer – The Chicago Pattern Maker
