I’ll be exploring the following ethical fashion and textiles issues:

  • What are key issues for sustainable fashion?
  • What are the latest sustainable fashion trends?
  • How are the mainstream fashion and textile companies raising awareness amongst the public about the ethical and sustainable implications of mass production?
