Book Event


Fast Fashion: Dana Thomas

Chaired by Jennifer Cox

Sunday 13th October 2019, 3.30-4.30pm

Baillie Gifford Big Tent


Former model and fashion journalist Dana Thomas talks to Lucy Siegle about how to tackle the environment’s next biggest challenge.

We live in an era of disposable fashion. New collections are now launched on a rolling basis and a dress can be bought for a fiver and thrown away. The industry produces 80 billion new garments annually, with more than half going to land fill within the same year. Fashion employs every sixth person on the planet and the impact on the environment is recognised as being greater than the airline and freight industry combined.

Dana Thomas, author of Fashionoplis, and leading journalist Lucy Siegle will discuss the damage wrought by the massive clothing industry – and the global movement ghting to reform it.

We all have been casual about our clothes, and it is time to get dressed with intention.

Books will be on sale and the event will be followed by a book signing.
