Fashion journalist Olivia Pinnock has launched a new series of evening events for consumers, industry and fashion elite to come together and discuss the critical issues which plague one of the world’s most glamourous industries. The Fashion Debates, looks to discuss the frustrations we feel towards the industry and aims to find a sustainable solution.
Discussion hot-topics will include sweatshop labour, racism, body image and feminism, Olivia hopes that the series will enable individuals to speak up about their thoughts and leave the night feeling empowered and ready to make a change. A variety of speakers will share their opinion from within the fashion industry, with Carry Somers, Founder of Fashion Revolution and Stella Heng Co-Founder and Creative Director of Sports Philosophy both announced to speak at the first event with more names to be confirmed shortly…
“I love fashion but there are so many problems within the industry,” states Olivia. “I was tired of feeling like these issues were out of my hands and I wanted to create a space where people didn’t just come to complain, but came to feel inspired and empowered. I want people to feel like they can be a part of the change, and revolutionise the industry for the better.”
The first fashion debate challenges sweatshop labour and takes place on 19th May at 7 pm at the Condé Nast College of Fashion and Design. The event is open to all and tickets can be purchased for £10, with a limited number of early bird tickets available for £5 until 19th April.
