It was an evening of elevated conversation with an eclectic panel that discussed the challenges of building an ethical and sustainable brand. We heard from four Chicago change-makers trailblazing different paths that are altering the fashion industry with real solutions to provide ethical working conditions and counter fast-fashion. Local industry professionals and other like-minded sustainable and ethical enthusiasts connected on their interest in creating real change.
