Let's Talk Ethical Fashion (Discuss)

So yesterday was our first year anniversary as a social enterprise fashion brand. We celebrated with a forum titled: Let's Talk Ethical Fashion at Liverpool Hope University. A lot of issues were raised in relation to ethical sourcing but, it became apparent during the discussion that, the definition of 'ethical sourcing' is unclear. Without a clear definition of what ethical sourcing is, we will never understand- where our products come, how they are produced. More about the discussion in our article coming soon.
