About the event:

We are excited to invite you to the first in our monthly networking evenings: fashion businesses, creatives, entrepreneurs, industry professionals and anyone interested in hearing more from the sustainable fashion world and related industries, come along for presentations, panel discussion and chance to chat amongst yourselves.

Our networking sessions are always an evening of active participation, with like-minded professionals from a broad range of backgrounds, so that you'll come away feeling motivated and confident.

This month's theme is Eco Activewear and Swimwear. We'll be joined by a plethora of industry guests each month, from those with brands to those innovating in materials.

When and where?

Monday 20th January 6.30pm-9.00pm
The Marylebone (Saloon Bar), 93 Marylebone High Street, London W1U 4RE

Head upstairs to the Saloon Bar at The Marylebone for an intimate setting, and one that you can continue to chat in as the night draws on. Refreshments are by a paid bar service.

Please arrive from 6.30pm onwards. If you're a little early, we request you wait in the bar downstairs before heading up, to allow the team time to finish setting up. Discussions will begin from 7.15pm, but if you're running late, please don't be afraid to arrive mid-discussions. The evening is very informal and we welcome all latecomers.

Moderator:

The discussion will be moderated by Charlie Bradley Ross, founder and Director of Offset Warehouse and The Sustainable Fashion Collective.

We're going global

Connecting with like-minded individuals is so important. We've heard on countless occasions how valuable the monthly networking events have been, but connecting with others shouldn't be restricted to in-person. That's why we're excited to launch the live stream and online chat, where those of you not based in London can join the conversation, access invaluable sustainable business advice and connect with other entrepreneurs globally from the comfort of home.
