Event Details

Some of the UK’s most influential fashion voices head to Selfridges Exchange Square in March to debate the future of fashion.

As part of our Material World project, we're hosting a provocative fashion panel that challenges the fashion industry’s “can’t do” attitude when it comes to sustainability - and asks whether it’s up to a younger generation to force fashion to clean up its act.

The clothes we wear, the materials they are made from and how they are manufactured all have human and environmental consequences. Yet while fast fashion is acknowledged as socially and environmentally irresponsible, the fashion industry has done little to improve its ethical credentials. 

Hosted by Katie Popperwell, we'll be welcoming to the panel; i-D magazine’s deputy editor Lynette Nylander, Illustrated People’s Phoebe Lettice Thompson, rising fashion star John Alexander Skelton, whose spring/summer 2017 collection was featured in the New York Times & Sophie Slater, co-founder of ethical fashion brand Birdsong. 

Tickets are complimentary and include your place for the panel talk & complimentary drinks 

When: Thursday 9 March 2017 18:00

Where: Menswear on 1, Selfridges Exchange Square, Manchester
