As part of Dutch Sustainable Fashion Week, our Founder jumped into bed with two sustainable fashion heavyweights for an intimate discussion on how to improve a dirty industry.

The event drew inspiration from the format used by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, who almost 50 years ago in Amsterdam, held a press conference – in bed – to draw attention to world peace.

Curated by the True Fashion Collective, and made possible by Conscious Hotels and Amsterdam Gemeente West, the event was framed around the topic of transparency in fashion.

Featured speakers were Tony Tonnaer, Founder of denim brand Kings of Indigo and Ciara Shah, Founder of ethical fashion concept Verse.
