Orsola de Castro in conversation with Lucy Siegle

A stimulating discussion between Orsola de Castro and Lucy Siegle, covering the reform needed within the fashion industry and Orsola's company, From Somewhere.

It will be a unique opportunity to see two influential individuals involved in sustainable issues discuss the revolution in the fashion industry. Orsola de Castro, the Upcycling Queen, is the founder of From Somewhere, Reclaim to Wear and Esthetica; she has collaborated with companies such as Topshop, Tesco and Speedo. Currently reporting for BBC One's The One Show, Lucy Siegle has written a weekly ethical living column for The Observer since 2004, as well as writing Green Living in the Urban Jungle and To Die For.

Delving into the work and history of From Somewhere, the discussion will also go into the urgent themes facing the fashion industry. In the spotlight of Rana Plaza and other tragedies in the name of mainstream fashion. The talk will take place within the Inside Design exhibition, looking at the design process and what is important to Orsola: touch, colour, how dresses fall and how fashion has responsibilities alongside looking great.

Places are free but please book in advance at events@greatwesternstudios.com.
