LDC x Fabric for Freedom: A 360° Approach to Sustainable Fashion, 20/11 @ 6.30pm
Wednesday 20th November // @ 6.30 - 9PM
130 Shoreditch High Street, London, E1 6JE
Lone Design Club and Fabric for Freedom have teamed up for an exciting evening to discuss circular fashion and support the creators in the industry.
There's a lot that consumers don't often know about how their clothes are made, or how to look after them after purchasing. That's because fast fashion brands won't tell you.
"If you can buy it for £4, it's happening." Modern day slavery and sweat shops are something that simply cannot be brushed under the carpet. These are modern day issues that need to be talking about in order to make a change.
This panel will be an open discussion about the issues in the fashion and also the positive changes we can easily make. Let's improve the fashion industry together.
Who’s this for?
- Those interested in sustainability
- Fashion industry professionals

What to expect:

- 8pm: Q&A
- 8.30pm: Drinks + networking
- 9pm: close!
Meet the Speakers:
Esther Knight, Founder + Creative Director of Fabric for Freedom
A sustainable womenswear brand educating consumers on sustainable shopping. After working within Buying for high street fast fashion brands as well as designer brands, Esther Knight brings her insight into the industry.
Fabric For Freedom was created after witnessing first hand the exploitation within fashion brands. They aim to bring change to the fashion industry minimising their impact on the environment and being a company that protects people and prevents climate change.
Who's mission is to End Slavery in our lifetime.
Everyday, countless people are sold into slavery as slave owners and make a profit off their misery. International Justice Mission is a global organisation with a plan to eliminate the slave trade everywhere.
They have rescued more than 49,000 people from slavery and other forms of violence. They work with police to throw slave owners in jail and as laws are enforced, the business model of slavery becomes unprofitable for the slave owners.
With fast fashion contribution to the 40 million people living in modern day slavery we work with partners to eradicate this from supply chains. No one should be a slave to fashion.
They will be discussing slavery within fashion supply chains and providing insight on how everyone can make a difference to try prevent Human Trafficking.
40% of ticket proceeds will be donated to IJM.
