The Department of Public Information (DPI) and the non-governmental organizations (NGO) community teamed up to discuss the subject of sustainable fashion practices on 16 November in a DPI/NGO Briefing entitled, “Fashion and Sustainability: Look Good, Feel Good, Do Good."


The briefing focused on best practices in reducing excessive consumption of natural resources and practices that can provide low-cost fashion, by adopting sustainable production practices throughout the supply chain.


The panel also featured Patrick Duffy, founder of Global Fashion Exchange; Andrea Reyes, Chair of the NYC Fair Trade Coalition; Shivram Punjya, Founder and CEO of benhno; and Aisha Dearwester, Director of Strategy and Partnerships at Nest; who talked about practical ways people can take action and on how to support the advancement of local artisans.
