Fashion Talks: Orsola de Castro: Fashion Revolution and the truth behind the fashion industry

About this Event

Fashion Revolution are a global movement striving for a global fashion industry that conserves and restores the environment, valuing people over growth and profit. Founded by Orsola de Castro and Carry Somers in 2013, to influence the culture of the fashion industry, to drive change across the industry and to encourage governments to play a more active role in enforcing laws to regulate the fashion industry. Orsola, an internationally recognised opinion leader in sustainable fashion, will reveal the truth behind the fashion industry.

Orsola de Castro's career started as a designer with the pioneering upcycling label From Somewhere, which she launched in 1997 until 2014. Her designer collaborations include collections for Jigsaw, Tesco, Speedo, and 4 bestselling capsule collections for Topshop from 2012 to 2014. In 2006, she co-founded the British Fashion Council initiative Estethica at London Fashion Week, which she curated until 2014. Orsola is a regular keynote speaker and mentor, Associate Lecturer at UAL, as well as Central Saint Martin's Visiting Fellow. In February 2021, Orsola’s first book, “Loved Clothes Last”, was published by Penguin Life.
