Sustainable Fashion Is Having A Moment, But What Does That Mean?
SEPTEMBER 4TH | 8:30AM | THE HOLDEN ROOM
Moderated by Emma Olson (Klar Agency) with Bobbi Barron (Hazel & Rose, Klar Agency), Kathryn Sterner (Winsome Goods) and Cat Polivoda (CAKE Plus Size Resale).
A Free Monthly Event Curated By LAB for Business In Partnership With Hennepin Made + Parallel Café
Helping celebrate the month of fashion in Minnesota, LAB Talks is diving deep into the sustainable fashion movement with a panel of perspectives from Minnesota-based businesses who are committed to supporting ethical, sustainable practices and slow fashion in our community.
Bringing her experience and passion to the LAB Talks conversation, Emma Olson, the co-founder and former owner of Hazel & Rose and co-owner of Klar Agency will explore what sustainable fashion means with the curated panel as they explore the nuances across the industry - why does it matter, how will it evolve, rewards and challenges, community building, why it drives us, and what that means for shoppers.
