The Fashion Debates is a London-based event series exploring ethical issues affecting the fashion industry. From sustainability, to diversity, to animal rights, and workers’ rights, our aim is to make the industry as beautiful as the clothes it produces. Run by the industry, for the industry, we believe in taking responsibility and empowering people to make a difference. We give each topic its own dedicated evening, featuring an expert panel who have included activists, journalists, stylists, lawyers, models, and ethical fashion pioneers. Our evenings have become much more than just debates; they have helped to nurture passionate professionals, informed consumers, and a network ready to create a new generation of fashion.
