Last night Be Social Change held a discussion at Green Spaces on merging fashion with sustainable social impact. Panelist included Summer Rayne Oakes from Source4Style, Erica Wolf from Save the Garment Center, Eileen Moran from NOW Showcase, David Radparvar from Holstee, and Deirdre McGuigan from INDEGO AFRICA, moderated by Carmen Artigas.

The talk centered around the question: Can fashion be a catalyst for social change?

Here are the key points:

Re-thinking how fashion is produced and consumed is vital to creating mindful consumers. Fashion can be used as a tool to create awareness and social change.

Recognizing the efforts being made by mega-brands like Levis and Nike, who are recognizing and supporting social change.

Realizing that every consumer has the power to create positive impact by voting with their dollar.

  2. Valuable information. Fortunate me I discovered your web site unintentionally, and I’m stunned why this coincidence didn’t happened earlier! I bookmarked it.
