The fashion industy has gained a reputation as a polluter, human rights abuser, and an outlier in the movement toward social responsibility as companies respond to the demand to provide more, cheaper, and faster products. But are we now witnessing signs of progress? Join our panel of industry experts as they discuss efforts to upend, reinvent, and otherwise disrupt the "fast fashion" industry. Learn how companies both big and small, as well as consumers, can play a role in reforming how we buy, wear, and dispose of our clothes.
