Dress responsibly film screening & eco-ethical forum
07
Jun '12
Fashion Fights Poverty (FFP) will host Dress Responsibly panel discussion at the Artisphere Dome Theater in Arlington, VA on Friday, June 8th, 2012.

The event will cover eco and ethical topics faced by the fashion industry at all levels (consumer, worker, manufacturing, etc.). Topics will include sustainability, social responsibility, micro-finance, worker's issues, and the international commercial fashion industry.

Panelists:
• Philip Cooley, Detroit Lives
• Marga Fripp, Empowering Women International
• Bianca Alexander, Conscious Living TV
• Other panelists TBD

The forum will feature a screening of the Detroit Lives! documentary 'After the Factory'. The documentary presents an opportunity to learn from two diametrically different cultures (Detroit, Michigan and Lodz, Poland) as their entire way of life transitions to something new.

Stories from the citizens are inspiring. Ideas from community leaders are thought-provoking. Free-thinking entrepreneurs put a new spin on traditional concepts of growth.
