The Italian Chamber of Commerce is very pleased to invite you to join us at our seminar, which will guide you on a journey at the discovery of the Ethical Fashion.

Ethical Fashion is an emerging trend in the clothing industry that strives at minimizing the impact on the environment of its processes of designing, sourcing and manufacturing. It aims to reach sustainability from both a social, environmental and commercial point of view.

Clothing will share her journey with the audience as well as insights into the environmentally and ethically devastation fashion industry and what they’re doing to solve that global problem. Within the talk, she’ll also be listing out different ways others can make an impact as a consumer and open up some awareness.
