  • Athleta 126 5th Avenue New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

With the explosion of “Fast Fashion”, the industry has been facing increased scrutiny. Our clothing is often made in an unethical manner, rife with human rights abuses throughout the supply chain, ranging from forced labor to inhumane work conditions. Emerging technology is increasingly seen as a way to create transparency in this supply chain, and secure the rights of fashion workers. This panel will discuss the way that technology, ranging from AI to Blockchain, might be leveraged to create a more sustainable fashion industry.

Panelists: Martine Jarlgaard, Leonardo Bonanni (Sourcemap), LanVy Nguyen (Fashion 4 Freedom), and Mounir Ibrahim (True Pic)
