Description

Threads rethinking fashion

The series of events ‘Threads - Rethinking Fashion’ explores the topic of sustainability in the apparel industry and how to support innovations for a fair and sustainable supply chain. The series has been created by a partnership between Impact Hub King’s Cross, Ashoka Changemakers and The Lissome.
