Description

TD Guest Speaker Series presents Kate Fletcher | A Talk About Sustainable Fashion & Textiles | Save-the-Date January 17th, 2013

Emily Carr as part of the TD Speaker Series/Designer in Residence Program welcomes Kate Fletcher an international thought leader and researcher on sustainable fashion and textiles.

Over the last 15 years, Kate's original thinking and progressive outlook has infused the field of fashion, textiles and sustainability with design thinking, and come to define it. Kate is one of the founders of the ‘slow fashion’ movement and instigator of directional sustainability projects, including Local Wisdom, which has engaged hundreds of people worldwide with the ‘craft of use’ and ‘post-growth’ fashion and was shortlisted for the Observer Ethical Awards in 2010.
