Mark the closing of Fashion Statement as we whisk from the glamorous world of fashion and into the realm of our next original exhibit Scrapyard: Innovators of Recycling. The fashion industry is one of the most wasteful in the world – join a panel of experts to discuss challenges faced by the industry and how to “green” the fashion of the future.
