IMAGE GALLERY: Meadowhall hosts sustainable fashion debate

Representatives from the world of fashion design and retail came together at Sheffield’s Meadowhall shopping centre last week for a debate on sustainable fashion.

Celebrity stylist and Britain’s Next Top Model judge Grace Woodward, fashion designer Helen Storey, University of Sheffield’s professor Tony Ryan and Marks & Spencer’s sustainable raw materials specialist Dr Mark Sumner took part in the ‘fashion conversation’, curated by the Centre for Sustainable Fashion.

The event explored themes around sustainability and how people can make a positive change in the way they buy and wear fashion in everyday life.

“We all have a responsibility to slow fashion down. We all have a part to play. No one is perfect but everyone can do small things in order to reflect a big change,” said Woodward.

Sumner added: “At M&S we work to ensure that the products we offer to customers are more sustainable than ever before. It’s a pragmatic approach – we’re not perfect but we’re working to make it easier for consumers to make the right choice.”
