Wedge 18: Revolution

Description


Do you know the true cost of your clothes? This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world.


The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?


Brought to you by The Wedge Asia and The Working Capitol, this an event as part of the Fashion Revolution Week Singapore series. We are screening this fashion documentary and then hearing from these thought leaders on how we can move towards a more sustainable future:


Hanna Hillila ~ Creative Director Matter

Hanna is the creative director for Matter, an artisan, eco-warrior brand who designs 'pants to see the world in'.


Laura Francois ~ Country Coordinator Fashion Revolution Singapore and Co-Founder of Artisan & Fox

Laura feels most alive when working on projects of social innovation, particularly related to sustainability and human rights. As a creative design thinker, she currently applies her passion for people consulting social enterprises working on ethical and sustainable fashion projects in Southeast Asia.


Raye Padit ~ Founder of Connected Threads Asia and Swapaholics

Raye’s passion is advancing and promoting sustainable fashion and bringing awareness around the social and environmental impacts of fast fashion. He launched Swapaholics, a clothing and accessory swapping platform that declutters and refreshes closets without hurting wallets and our planet!


Moderated by: Stephanie Dickson ~ Founder of Green Is The New Black
