The Business and Sustainability of the Fashion Industry

January 29, 2020
250 Park Ave, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10177

The fashion industry is second only to the petroleum industry in its impact to the environment. Spend an evening with us as we explore the impact of fashion, the changing perspectives of end consumers, the people looking for sustainable solutions in an industry with the same manufacturing practices in place since the early 1900s, and the undiscovered opportunities for investors, manufacturers, retailers, and the end consumer. This event will feature Jane Philbrick (founder of TILL bioFASHIONtech, committed to promoting biomaterials for manufacturing), Julie Tong (commerce editor at Vogue), and Sharon Lungrin (Co-Founder, @aeternallovers, a Bronx music and clothing brand committed to upcycling and creating original designs and music inspired by NYC). The event will be moderated by Randy Ramirez.
