Are you interested in the fashion industry? Do you care about fair trade and sustainability? How can you apply your values in an industry with such a complex supply chain?
This month, we have the honor of hosting Andrea Reyes, the Chair of NYC Fair Trade Coalition, and founder of A. Bernadette: a fair trade fashion brand in Uganda. Lastly, she teaches fashion marketing, international trade, and business development classes at Baruch College, LIM College, and the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Andrea will be bringing her insight from the East Coast to the West. Coming from New York, the fashion capital of the country, we will learn all about the integration of sustainability and fair trade in the fashion industry today.
If you want to learn more after FAIR Talks, Andrea is putting together a 2-day Fashion Business Plan Writing Workshop - Los Angeles Edition on Feb 2nd + 3rd to help you start, grow, or revitalize your fashion brand!
