Culture, textiles and sustainability are interconnected and interdependent. From the appropriation of traditional designs to disrupting biodiversity, fashion fails to respect Indigenous communities. In this live panel event during #FashionRevolutionWeek, we’ll explore solutions that prioritise cultural sustainability.
