Slow Fashion Panel at Slow Food Nations in Denver, CO

July 15, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm


Event Navigation

Food, clothing, and shelter. These ancient yet basic human needs are now delivered via huge, swift and centralized systems. Their success to do so is staggering, but at what costs? This is where Slow comes in. What are the hidden costs to deliver reliably cheap food, clothing and shelter? Are they really so cheap, so efficient, so desirable if we take the long view?

Together with the call to defend the Slow Food, there is a growing voice of designers, labor advocates and consumers who call to defend the Slow Fashion. We are delighted to share with you these new voices. The quandary from field to frock raises so many questions familiar to us who work in food: How do we bring greater transparency to the industrial system that clothes us? Can it be reformed? Where are the strategic interventions in this global textile supply chain? Is there a viable value chain that keeps cotton, leather, wool, and other materials closer to home?

Come join in on this discussion with Rebecca Burgess and Jussara Lee. Moderated by Kevin Boyer of the Regenerative Agriculture Foundation.

Tickets & more information are available on the Slow Food Nations Conference site.
