Compassion in Fashion at Sustainable Fur-Free Fashion Festival in Shanghai
ACTAsia hosted a series of three Fur-Free fashion events on 17 October to promote awareness of responsible, sustainable fashion around the world. More than 800 press attended.
Three events – a Fur-Free Forum, Fashion Show and Caring for Life Gala Dinner – came together to consider, showcase and celebrate the theme of Compassion in Fashion, and to reflect on the work of ACTAsia’s wider Caring for Life Education programme.
The event united leading international figures from the world of fashion, providing a forum for discussion on sustainable and fur-free fashion from three main angles: education, fashion business practice and consumption trends. It also explored the curriculum on sustainable fur-free fashion soon to be launched jointly by collaborators London College of Fashion and ACTAsia.
To follow the Forum for discussion, a pioneering Fashion Show featured Chinese celebrities and socialites of all shapes and sizes, instead of professional models.
