The series of events ‘Threads: Rethinking Fashion’ explores the topic of sustainability in the apparel industry and how to support innovations for a fair and sustainable supply chain. The series has been created by a partnership between Impact Hub King’s Cross and The Lissome, with the participation of Ashoka Changemakers.

The series will guide the audience through the 3 main steps of the supply chain - sourcing of raw materials, manufacturing and consumption - to expose the issues related to each of them, explore possible solutions and highlight best practices. The goal is to inspire people to change their consumption habits and take an active role in shaping a more sustainable and fair apparel industry.
