The Fashion & Textile Museum is proud to continue its much-anticipated series of Wednesday evening talks. Sponsored by Newham College, this particular series will explore and debate four controversial topics whilst attempting to answer the question ‘what is the cost of fashion?’

Fashion and Working Conditions:
Is there an ‘ethical revolution sweeping through the world’s sweatshops?’ as the Independent suggested in a recent article?

Are large fashion companies really cleaning up their act and turning away from inhumane working conditions? A distinguished panel, chaired by a marketing guru with a conscience, Diane Verde Nieto from Clownfish Marketing, includes fashion icon Katharine Hamnett, fashion journalist Fleur Britten, Chad Hagen, CEO of Wildlife Walks, and a member of the pressure group Labour Behind The Label.
