IN CONVERSATION WITH DANA THOMAS

We invited Dana Thomas, the author of 'Fashionopolis: The Price of Fast Fashion and the Future of Clothes' for a candid discussion exploring the sustainability movement and why it is imperative that fashion goes truly green. In this discussion, we explored how the fashion cycle has negatively impacted humanity and the planet, why that impact is an immense problem, and what businesses and consumers can do to correct this.

FUTURE SOLUTIONS WITH THE INSTITUTE OF DIGITAL FASHION

URL is the new IRL but digital is not just a quick fix for the now — it is a tool of expansion to create a more inclusive, democratic and sustainable fashion industry. Following their Instagram takeover on @theofficialselfridges we went behind the scenes with co-founders of the Institute of Digital Fashion, Leanne Elliott Young and Cattytay, as we learn how digital artists model their 3D designs – from concept to end (virtual) product – watch to explore how AR fashion could be the new future.
