INSTITUTE OF POSITIVE FASHION FORUM

The British Fashion Council has announced the schedule for its very first Institute of Positive Fashion Forum event, due to take place digitally Thursday 10 June 2021.

The day-long event, priced at £150, will see speakers including Alok Sharma (COP26), Stella McCartney, Marco Gobbetti (Burberry), Virgil Abloh (Off-White & Louis Vuitton Mens), June Sarpong (BBC), Priyanka Chopra Jonas (BFC Ambassador), Emmanuel Gintzburger (Alexander McQueen), Marie-Claire Daveu (Kering), Cyrill Gutsch (Parley for the Oceans) and Nicolaj Reffstrup (GANNI).

Speakers will come together to present practical steps for brands and businesses to create a positive environmental and social change – such as sustainability, circularity, social justice, diversity and inclusion.

IPF Forum is a thought leadership event designed to take advantage of the British fashion industry alongside international businesses into global collaboration and local action, ahead of COP26, the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, hosted in Glasgow in November 2021.
