'Ethical fashion – sustainable by design?’ A presentation by Pamela Ravasio

  • May 22, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Pamela Ravasio, a founder member of CSR Meetup London, will give a short presentation to set the scene for a discussion amongst attendees on approaches that fashion companies might take to prove their ethical credentials, not the least to often cynical consumers. Pamela is the co-founder of the first and so far only full-process consulting company that specialises in sustainability in the fashion industry. She is also an independent researcher and journalist. Her blog Shirahime (http://shirahime.com) won a 2011 Observer Ethical award and she also contributes to the Guardian Sustainable Business Blog. So please come along to hear what an expert in this area has to say about a topic that is particularly pertinent to the issue of how companies manage globalised supply chains in a responsible way. Once again, for those attendees that might not have been to this venue before, please do notconfuse it with Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese in Fleet Street! A cash bar will be available the ground floor before and after the Meetup. Usually, food is also available at this venue if ordered before 8pm.

    Dr Ravasio answered her own question at the start with "Maybe." One of our group's maxims is Activism and we are, as consumers, a potentially major force in fomenting change in the way the fashion industry does business. There are three key questions for us: 1. Do I need it? 2. What is in it? 3. Where does it come from? This is a starting point that might see more Patagonias, no Primarks and less wearable apparel in landfill. A very good and eye opening session.

    In what was a well attended meetup, Pamela gave the audience some fascinating insights into the social and environmental impact of the fashion industry. She also shared her thoughts on what the industry might do to be more sustainable and how consumer attitudes might accelerate this. This prompted a highly interactive discussion covering various issues, including the potential impact of 3D printing on the clothing industry (watch this space!), which continued in the bar afterwards. So many thanks Pamela for presenting and thanks again to Mo of the Cheshire Cheese for the use of the function room.

    An excellent evening with some good lessons, thoughts and ideas that can be taken into other industry sectors; as always, a good discussion to follow and excellent networking. Steve Mullins
