Fast Fashion

For fashionistas with a social conscience or anyone simply interested in finding out more about the ethics of the industry, this event tonight is not to be missed. As part of Fashion Revolution Week, finishing on Sunday, the evening features a screening of “Slowing Down Fashion,” an award-winning documentary highlighting the environmental impacts of garment production, narrated by Alex James, a U.K. musician and former bassist for Brit-Pop band Blur. Afterward, hear about Cambodia’s fashion industry from three different perspectives with talks from Hanna Guy of Kampot-based ethical fashion label Dorsu; Esther Germans, program manager for Better Factories Cambodia, an International Labor Organization initiative that seeks to improve working conditions in Cambodia’s garment industry; and Sarah Hopkins, sustainability manager at H&M. Each presentation will be followed by questions from the audience.

Free to attend. 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. tonight at FCC Mansion, #3 Sothearos Blvd., Phnom Penh
