Our panel event will ignite a discussion about how designers have the first impact to create positive supply chains in manufacture - from planting the seed through to production to selling and the end life cycle of a garment or product. Bringing to light the closed loop system of production and design.

The world of manufacturing and fast fashion cycles have grown at an unsustainable speed, affecting the people making them and having a devastating effect on the environment and insurmountable issues for charities.

There is a growing concern from consumers wanting to reconnect with makers and designers and purchase products with a positive supply chain and story. Fashionably Numb is creating this event for you, the consumer, to hear not only about the issues but most importantly the solutions!
