Five years after the catastrophic collapse of the Rana Plaza garment factory in Bangladesh, what has changed in the way fashion is produced and sold? What can industry, governments, campaigners and consumers do to help make modern fashion supply chains safer, fairer and more sustainable?
Panelists will include Mark Sumner, Lecturer in Sustainability, Fashion and Retail at the University of Leeds; Sarah Ditty, Head of Policy at Fashion Revolution; artist Alke Schmidt, and Anna Skodbo, Creative Director and founder of phannatiq, an independent clothing brand committed to sustainable manufacture and supply chain transparency. The event will be chaired by labour rights and ethical trade expert Pins Brown.
The panel discussion is part of the events programme around Alke Schmidt’s exhibition “Wonder and Dread – Tales from the Global Textile Industry” at Bradford Industrial Museum.
