Talkshow with Safia and Andrew


Talkshow with Safia and Andrew

We don't want to sound like Carrie Bradshaw here, but boy, do we love fashion...! But often the way our clothes are made is not so pretty... Something that really needs to change. How can we fast forward the transition to a fair and green fashion industry? Safia Minney (People Tree) and Andrew Morgan (The True Cost) will be sharing their thoughts at the Strawberry Earth Fair in the talkshow 'The Future of Fashion' on Friday 9 October.

Our Strawberry Earth Academy fellow Safia Minney is an ethical fashion pioneer. With her label People Tree she designs beautiful garments and at the same time improves things in the fashion industry. Safia makes sure customers are supplied with good quality products whilst the environment stays protected, partnerships are supported and all employees are getting a fair wage. No wonder she received the Outstanding Social Entrepreneur award.

What's the True Cost of fashion? In his documentary, Andrew Morgan pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us, who really pays the price for our clothing? The True Cost is a story about clothing. About the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. We can't wait to have this internationally recognized director on stage and ask him what the future holds for fashion. How can we use the power of storytelling as a tool in the ongoing fight for human rights in the fashion industry?
