The fashion industry is one of the world's biggest problems. It's worth 1.5 trillion dollars per year, it's the second most polluting industry in the world after oil, and it's responsible for countless human rights violations.

Killer Clothes: How to Stand Up to Fast Fashion is about discussing the major issues of the fashion industry, how fashion industry heavyweights are solving them, and the solutions we can all apply to our shopping habits, because, unlike other huge problems in the world, the fashion industry affects us all every day: when we stand pantless, in front of the many pairs of pants in our wardrobe, complaining we don’t have any pants; when we go swimming and discover the elastic in our on-trend bikini isn’t as robust as it should be; or when our so-hot-right-now denim flares become so-not-hot-right-now denim flares before we even have the chance to look hot in them.

Ethicist Sascha Callaghan, renowned Australian designer Celeste Tesoriero, General Manager of Patagonia Australia, Dane O'Shanassy, and Brand Manager of Cue, Kate Bielenberg, will discuss the challenges, the ways they are solving them, and the strategies we can adopt to stand up to fast fashion.

Come along to hear leaders of the fashion industry unpack complex environmental and ethical issues, to learn about how consumers make decisions and how consumer habits can be changed, and to be part of a good, old-fashioned, in-depth discussion about a really interesting topic. 

If you need any more convincing, there will also be goodie bags.
