What is “fast fashion” and why won’t our clothes today survive like those designed and worn by previous generations? Join the discussion on sustainable fashion, and find out how historical fashion can inform sustainable initiatives today. Local fashion leaders will discuss various topics, including efforts to reimagine a more regional textile economy and the global problems with fast fashion culture.

Victoria Pass moderates the conversation with her guests Valeska Populoh who teaches a number of courses in the Fiber and Foundation programs at the Maryland Institute College of Art and facilitates the Baltimore Natural Dye Initiative, Janice Wallace the editor-in-chief of Cultivons, Creative Director at The Fashion Parade and a founding member of DC Sustainable Fashion Collective, Caprice Jackson, who curated a film for Sustainable Fashion Week of Baltimore based designers, including many of the participants in the Natural Dyes project, and Allison Tolman, MCHC’s Vice President of Collections & Interpretation for a stimulating community discussion!
