Fashioning and Ethical Industry* (FEI) Conference
An event for fashion and textile tutors and students
The production, consumption and marketing of fashion in the future will look very different. Can we transform the way we design, make and relate to fashion so that the industry is ethical and sustainable? Introducing exciting new approaches, this event will equip Scotland’s fashion & textile tutors and students with ideas for engaging in this emerging area.
