An excerpt of our founder, Melissa Leslie's, speech on ethical fashion at the Women's Convention
We are excited and honored to be part of the lineup at the upcoming Women's Convention next weekend in Detroit! Earlier this year we saw the power of our collective voices as women came together from all over the country to march for our rights. Building on that momentum is critical to ensuring that our voices continue to be heard.
We will be leading a discussion entitled Ethical Fashion: What it means for consumers, laborers, and the planet. Fellow panelists include Anjali Purohit, Designer and Founder of the sustainable brand Variously, Sarah Ayers, Founder of the cut and sew shop William + Bonnie and natural textile dyeing business Home Grown Textiles, Lori McColl CEO + Founder of the retail tech consulting firm Whim-Detroit, Bob Bland CEO + Founder of Manufacture New York & Co-President of the Women's March, and Tabitha St. Bernard-Jacobs, Women's March Team Member and Co-Founder of labels Tabii Just and LIVARI, a totally sustainable, women-led, zero waste fashion brand that's bringing a new brand of female-focused activism to New York Fashion Week.
The slow fashion movement is here to stay and we will break down why it matters and how you can get involved.
