In Talks With


Crafted to Last – the movement towards slow fashion

This season, Jacket Required looks to shine a spotlight on the growing emphasis and importance placed on sustainability within the fashion sector.
In an industry all about supply and demand, there are a growing number of brands, buyers and consumers that place innovation and transparency at their centre. With a commitment to upholding and promoting environmentally friendly practices – it’s timely to learn more from them.
Rather than simply embracing a ‘sustainability trend’ Jacket Required presents a panel discussion providing insight into sustainability and responsibility to our environment, as industry leaders share knowledge with retailers, press and consumers about best practice, and encourage us to introduce this crucial way of thinking into our lives.


British fashion commentator and Professor of Diversity Caryn Franklin M.B.E. MSc (Psych) MBPsS will moderate the session titled ‘Crafted to Last – the movement towards slow fashion’.
Taking part in the discussion will be a panel of industry experts including:

- British fashion designer Christopher Raeburn, who is known for his re-appropriation of military fabrics
- Stacey Wood, Founder of King & Tuckfield, a men's and women's collection where premium material, provenance and a sustainable approach are key to the brand
- Han Ates from Blackhorse Lane Ateliers, makers of ready-to-wear selvedge and organic raw denim with a focus on sustainability, community and unmatched quality

Join us for what’s set to be a fascinating discussion.
