NYBSC: It’s coming up this Thursday: Hurry to register for Sustainable Fashion: January 17th

Part one of the 2013 Certificate program:

Sustainable Fashion: Timeless or Trendy?

It’s no secret that mainstream fashion has a bad eco-reputation, but there’s a new movement in vogue.

Our illustrious panel of eco fashion innovators will discuss fashion’s negative environmental impact and new sustainable approaches to materials, production, recycling and toxic waste.

Gain insight into the challenges of designing eco- fashion and promoting it to mainstream fashionistas. How do you convince designers, manufacturers, retailers and consumers that eco-friendly fashion can also be chic and trendy?
