Sustainability Drinks – How can we make sustainable fashion accessible?

January 19 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

 

SustainabilitDrinks_FB_Event_Cover How can we make sustainable fashion accessible?

It is increasingly common knowledge that the fashion industry has severe environmental and social impacts. Just as fashion can be an expression of art or of the person wearing it, it can also tell a story about these issues. What you purchase and wear expresses your support for one side or the other of this story. Where do you stand??

At our first event of the year, Vino Kilo will be hosting us, as we discuss ways to make Sustainable Fashion accessible.  Join us on on the 19th of January at Spreewerkstätten to learn, shop, network and be inspired.

Before the Speakers go on you  all visitors are invited to the Vintage Kilo Sale (VinoKilo) – Berlin, to shop vintage pieces per kilo price.

Our speakers of the evening will be:
