From 11th – 24th October I will be in Chile taking part in a number of events and activities celebrating sustainability and fashion as a fusion of the traditional and progressive. Come and take part in a series of events that mark out Chile as at the centre of fashion-sustainability activity in Latin America, including a free public lecture in Santiago on 21st October; a panel discussion on the morning of the 22nd involving politicians, psychologists and designers; and workshops also on 22nd October, for which you must register.
Before that though I will spend some time with weavers in the far North of the country in the Atacama Desert. And even before that you can read a piece in the Chilean newspaper El Mercurio about my visit (p14 onwards).
It’s fantastic to see the fashion-sustainability movement take hold in Central and South America. If I could, I would love to be on the panel with psychologists, politicians and designers to hear future outcomes and proposals.
