About this event


It's time for fashion to build a more responsible business model. As the world grapples with a once-in-a-lifetime economic and public health crisis, mass demonstrations against racial injustice erupt across America, and a climate emergency looms in the background, there is an urgent imperative to re-imagine how our industry can better respect people and the planet.

On 17 June 2020, The Business of Fashion will gather leading global experts, entrepreneurs and activists in sustainability, ethical supply chains and workers rights for a half-day programme of interactive conversations, panel discussions and workshops, led by BoF's expert editors and correspondents.
