We had the amazing opportunity to be a part of the Threaded Shaping Fashion Virtual Forum on April 18th, to kick off Fashion Revolution Week.
Threaded is a Midwest-based community committed to driving change in the fashion industry. Whether or not you were able to “attend” the event that day, we wanted to share all of the resources, links and videos from the day’s seminars, and hope you can check out the studio tours of all the ethical brands who were involved.
