What does the Future of Fashion look like?

Join us to talk circular fashion, up-cycling and sustainability with fellow East London original Beyond Retro and sustainable fashion pioneer Save Your Wardrobe, as we bring together different voices from the fashion world for a fresh take on how clothes can save the world.

We’re delighted to be joined by Beyond Retro’s Global Marketing Director, Francesca Sieler to chair our panel.

Joining Francesca to talk all things circular fashion and sustainability are:

  • Hasna Kourda, CEO of Save Your Wardrobe (and Second Home member!)
  • Angelo Mitakos, Fashion Editor of GQ Magazine
  • Tiffanie Darke, Journalist and Sustainability Campaigner
  • Rosie OKotcha, Sustainable Fashion and Thrifting influencer

Doors are open from 6pm for drinks.

There’s also some amazing activities throughout the evening for you to actively get involved in and experience what the sustainable fashion industry has to offer, which will also kick off from 6pm and go on into the evening, so stay post panel for a DJ and more drinks after the talk.

  • Event partners Beyond Retro will have a host of incredible vintage clothes for guests to browse and buy on the night, featuring a variety of vintage and sustainable garments.
  • Second Home member brand Save Your Wardrobe will also be running an amazing sneaker cleaning station to breathe life into those old kicks.
  • Got some denim in need of a refresh? Bring it with you as Porter & Cook will be running a mini denim customisation station to reinvigorate denim jackets, skirts and jeans to get way more wear out of them.

Future First: Fashion is part of our new Future First event series, an exciting series looking at the industries, brands and people working to build a new future.
