Calling sustainability fans and fashionistas! Forest & Bird is partnering with Victoria University of Wellington’s School of Design Innovation to host a public talk and Q&A session on sustainable design on Thursday 28 September at 7:30 - 8:30pm.  

Hosted by Associate Professor Jennifer Whitty, a panel of fashion experts, students and designers will share insights on the environmental impact of the fashion industry, and the challenges and progress towards integrating sustainable practices. You’ll hear fresh perspectives from a new generation of designers, and leave equipped with the knowledge to make sustainable fashion choices.  

Our ‘Sustainable Threads’ panel lineup includes Marina Davis, founder, director and designer at sustainable clothing brand Ovna Ovich; Samantha Jones, founder and CEO of Little Yellow Bird; and Jacinta FitzGerald, Chief Executive of Mindful Fashion NZ. 

Register for this webinar here. We look forward to seeing you there! 

This includes an amendment to an earlier version which had this as a hybrid event - this event has now been moved entirely online.
