This panel discussion will serve to identify, address and deepen our understanding of the social and systemic issues that challenge and pervade the fashion system. Topics that will be the focal point of this solutions-based conversation will include cultural appropriation, celebrating personhood through diversity and what fashion makes possible in a tense political climate.
