HOSTED BY Devonshire Club

The fashion industry is worth £32billion to the British economy – the largest of the creative industries. Fashion has a serious issue with sustainability. Despite countless initiatives to reduce environmental impact, the carbon footprint is due to skyrocket in the next 10 years. Is fast fashion really to blame? It’s hard to argue the numbers: with people trying to keep up with the latest trends there are reportedly over £30billion of clothes languishing in UK wardrobes that haven’t been worn in at least 12 months – almost the value of the entire industry.

Hot off the heels of London Fashion Week, we ask what can be done to change mindsets. Do we as consumers need to put our money where our mouths are and when it comes to making sustainable fashion choices? What about slow fashion, upcycling or vintage?


The Merit Club members receive a limited amount of complimentary pair of tickets to this event.
