This Autumn, The Arts Club will be hosting a unique evening with three extraordinary women in fashion. You will be with a limited number of your peers for an exclusive hour-long immersive session discussing the intricate and fascinating complexities of the relationship between fashion and the health of our planet's ecosystems and species. You’ll hear the unique perspectives of three women who represent different parts of the fashion world through their in-depth discussion, and afterwards will have the opportunity to discuss your questions with them during a very special Q&A session.

What is the relationship between the fashion we love and remote ecosystems and threatened wildlife species?
How is each speaker working to foster a fashion culture that promotes a healthy planet instead of degrading it?
How can we make fashion purchasing and investment choices that support nature and natural systems?
A forecast of the upcoming series Fabric of Life, which will explore these themes more fully.
This is an exclusive event for The Arts Club members and up to three guests. Tickets can be purchased for £50 before 10 October 2018. There will be a cash bar to follow.

The Arts Club was founded in 1863 by men of vision in order to provide a haven for those people who had professional or amateur relationships with the Arts, Literature or Sciences. The Club has provided this hospitality and friendship ever since, having survived two world wars, as well as political and economic anomalies over the years.
