Fashion Night Out

CFT and Columbia College Fair Trade organization are co-hosting an ethical fashion show featuring fair trade vendors, local ethical fashion brands, and ┬ásustainable fashion student work. Before the fashion show, the public is open to socialize and sip on some fair trade wine, bites, and shop from our ethical fashion pop-up shop. After the fashion show there will be a panel discussion featuring ethical fashion super stars including Robert McMillan of Dearborn Denim & Apparel who are changing the game in Chicago manufacturing. Our awesome keynote speaker Kelsey Timmerman, author of “Where am I Wearing?” will be rounding out this action-packed night by discussing his revolutionary book on his own personal journey dealing with the harmful effects of the globalization of fashion.

“An enlightening and thought-provoking speaker, Timmerman is passionate about educated consumers, enouraging them to think globally and act locally. Putting a face on globalization, he provokes others to check their tags and think about where their clothing came from.”
