Katharine Hamnett is a global heritage brand, famous for making great clothes that you keep forever, launching new trends, creating new fabrics and inventing new technical processes as well as campaigning for political and social issues.
She is also the pioneer and leading spokesperson of ethical and environmental clothing, with the ability to generate international media attention across news and current affairs as well as fashion.
The Katharine Hamnett mission, ‘To produce ethical and environmental clothing on a large scale, alleviating poverty and preserve traditional skills’ has seen her voted ‘Britain’s No.1 Ethical Hero’ by New Consumer magazine and ‘Queen of Green’ by UK Vogue. She has also been described as ‘The most copied designer in the world’ by Sarah Mower in The Guardian.
Please join us to hear Katherine discuss her vision, and her approach to “the huge problems in the way clothing is manufactured that destroy lives and the environment, even impacting and contributing to global warming and climate change.”
