Synchronicity Earth Presents: A field trip to the V&A - Fashioned from Nature
The Fabric of Life series – A journey to unravel how the fashion industry impacts life on our planet.
A limited opportunity for 20 participants to view Fashioned from Nature, a timely exhibition at the prestigious V&A, with experts who are not only relevant, but featured in the exhibition. The exhibition demonstrates the importance of this topic, and provides a beautiful and concise overview of the history of fashion and how our relationship to it, and hence to nature, has changed over time. Followed by a private lunch.
Engage with world-class experts and converse with industry leaders as we lay out a roadmap for how we will use fashion as the lens through which we explore the concept of (un)sustainable fashion and its impact on biodiversity throughout this series, starting from the perspective of the ecosystems and species that are under threat.
