Designer Aurora James will discuss sustainability in design and the future of fashion with host Simone Cipriani. This event is part of the Hand of Fashion, a series of discussions intended to widen the understanding of sustainability in fashion design, enable and encourage sustainable thinking, and help establish a new normal in the fashion industry.

The series is hosted by Simone Cipriani, founder and manager of the Ethical Fashion Initiative (EFI), a flagship program of the International Trade Centre, which is a joint agency of the United Nations and the World Trade Organization. The EFI harnesses the power of fashion as a vehicle out of poverty by connecting artisans in the developing world to fashion’s supply chain.

All events in the series are free and open to the public, but an RSVP is requested. For more information, and to register, visit The Hand of Fashion is sponsored by FIT’s schools of Art and Design and Graduate Studies.
