Along with industry colleagues and organisations such as Baroness Lola Young, Fashion Revolution, WGSN, Futerra and the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre, they will examine key issues such as worker rights, purchasing practices, transparency, the changing consumer, circularity and sustainable materials to establish best practice and build common commitments for collaboration in these areas.

Beighton comments: “We believe the future of fashion is ever-changing, unpredictable but most of all incredibly exciting. By working together, we believe we can deliver a systemic shift in the way our industry addresses key ethical trade and sustainability challenges and proactively design a future we all believe in.”
