November 12 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join couture designer Ronald van der Kemp and The New Fashion Initiative founder Lauren B. Fay who will discuss van der Kemp’s career and his devotion to craftsmanship, upcycling and reducing waste in fashion. Ronald van der Kemp is a Dutch fashion designer and founder of demi-couture fashion house RVDK, his namesake label, which shows at Paris Couture week and uses exclusively upcycled fabric.
Lauren Fay has spent her career committed to improving sustainability, transparency and accountability in the fashion industry.
