If you follow Fabric For Freedom on social media you will already be aware that our founder Esther Knight hosted an Anti-Black-Friday Panel talk event in collaboration with Lone Design Club on Wednesday Night. Set against the backdrop of LDC’s industrial-chic retail space (currently filled with clothing from the best and brightest of London’s independent sustainable fashion brands, including Fabric For Freedom’s new collection). It was an evening of hard-hitting information and positive discussions on how we as fashion consumers can make a difference to the industry. Especially in the build-up to one of the most consumption-intensive weekends on the retail calendar.
Esther was joined on the panel by representatives from Fashion Revolution, International Justice Mission and CoGo - three organisations that are laying the groundwork for a better and fairer industry. Each in their own way working to improve the lives of everyone involved in fashion production and consumption.
“I started in the fashion industry more than 10 years ago, working my way up to buyer level. Throughout my career I have worked for many high-street and designer brands, more recently working at Vivienne Westwood".
