Some of the most forward thinking leaders are coming together to look at how tech can be used to create a more sustainable fashion industry.

About this Event

The event at Google for Startups Campus UK will take place on June 11th - from 6:30pm - 9:00pm.

In celebration of London Tech Week, Google Startups UK and ethical living app CoGo are hosting an event that will examine how innovation is creating sustainability in fashion that ‘doesn’t cost the earth.’

Please join us at Google for Startups Campus as we look at the trends, ideas and tech that are creating beautiful and ethical fashion that is winning over conscious customers and changing the way that businesses operate in the sector.

After welcoming remarks from Google and CoGo, the evening unfolds with a fireside chat with sustainable fashion hero and celebrated ‘Ecoture’ designer Deborah Milner.

In 2005 Deborah collaborated with Aveda to create her first collection, inspired by the idea that fashion labels can benefit without sacrificing or exploiting the environment. In 2016, following 8 years working with Alexander McQueen as a consultant on couture, Deborah re- established her own couture label working from her studio based in Central London. Deborah will talk about her designs, the sustainable ethos behind her brand, choosing natural dyes and sustainable products wherever possible, and working with highly skilled experts and ecologically minded manufacturers to bring her vision to life.

This chat will be followed by a panel discussion on how innovation is creating a more sustainable footprint in the clothes and ornaments we wear - from diamonds to sweaters and handbags.

The 30 minute panel discussion will feature:

- Kirsty Emery, Co-Founder of UNMADE

- Yossi Goldsmith, MD, CoGo

- Laura Chavez, Founder, Lark & Berry

- Leanne Kemp, Founder, Everledger

- Kresse Wesling, MBE, Founder, Elvis & Kresse

- Nina Marenzi, Founder of Sustainable Angle will moderate the panel.

There will be time for Q & A and opportunities to mingle after the panel.
