Join Brisbane fashion collective The Stitchery in conversation with Alison Gwilt and Dr Alice Payne, editors of Global Perspectives on Sustainable Fashion.

Global Perspectives on Sustainable Fashion showcases the global fashion industry's efforts to reduce the negative impacts associated with fashion production and consumption. 

Illustrated throughout with infographics, photographs and diagrams of creative works, eighteen essays focus on six regions, examining sustainable fashion in the context of local, cultural and environmental concerns. Also included are 18 regional 'Spotlight' sections highlighting the differences and similarities across regions by concentrating on examples of best practice, design innovation and impact on the community.

The panel discussion will put The Stitchery Collective in conversation with the editors and several contributing authors around contemporary approaches to sustainability in fashion, and will invite the audience to join the discussion around what can be done by fashion consumers in the face of the global climate crisis.
