“How is our clothing a purveyor of our political ideologies and related social values Fashion is embedded in global and local markets and implicated in cultural change, sexual codes, and social progress. As the fashion industry takes account of these issues, in what ways might it respond? How, for instance, might new technologies in the fashion industry improve the industry’s environmental impact?”

Panelists* will discuss the ways that “fashion may influence the global economy and expresses political, religious and ethical choices”.
