2nd Annual Sustainable Fashion Forum

Founded on the principles of discovery, education, leadership, and innovation, the Sustainable Fashion Forum is a one-day experience connecting fashion's industry professionals and insiders with its community to spark an intimate and informative conversation about ethical and sustainable fashion.

The first of its kind, the Sustainable Fashion Forum is a platform that looks to the future by fostering an honest and open dialogue about the social and environmental effects fashion has on our world and what we can do individually and collectively to improve it. From a series of intimate conversations to a live fashion show and presentation, the Sustainable Fashion Forum is where the fashion community can gather with the belief that together, we can create change.

The festivities will begin with two panel discussions. The first panel will be between local eco-bloggers/sustainability influencers who will discuss the effects the fashion industry has on the world from a consumers standpoint, why they've chosen to embark on a style journey with sustainability and consciousness in mind. The second panel will be between local designers and fashion’s top industry leaders about the obstacles and opportunities faced in the effort to create ethically-made and fashion-forward clothing.

Panelist Include:
Andrea Hartman, Season's + Salt
Davora Lindner, Prairie Underground
Angela Medlin, The Functional Apparel and Accessories Studio (FAAS)/Pensole
Chloe Lepeltier, Conscious by Chloe
Ellie Hughes, Selflessly Styled
Whitney Bauck, Fashionista
