Fashion has profited off Black and brown women for decades, refused to #PayUp for their labor and been quick to co-opt the Black Lives Matter Movement. Now is the time for us to use our voices and our wallets to hold the fashion industry accountable rather than letting the industry commoditize the Black Lives Matter movement to sell us more stuff. In this interactive conversation on Elevating Black Voices in the Sustainable Fashion Movement, we hear from:

Tahirah Hairston, Fashion and Beauty Features Director at Teen Vogue

Dechel McKillan, founder and creative director of GALERIE.LA

Brittany Sierra, founder of the Sustainable Fashion Forum in conversation with Ayesha Barenblat, founder of Remake

 

They talk about their journey and obstacles faced in being a part of a historically racist and exclusive industry, and how we can work together to build a more just and sustainable industry that works for many, rather than a few.
