OXFORD Fashion Week has showed that fashion may be fun, but it can also be ethical by hosting a speaker event about the impact of clothing production.

On Wednesday, Oxford Fashion Week held a panel on the impact of fashion on the environment, global resources and the communities involved in production.

Former Editor-in-Chief of Vogue.com Abi Chisman, eco fashion consultant Elizabeth Laskar, co-ordinator of the Sweatshop Free Campaign Matt Franklin and Oxfam’s ethical trade manager Rachel Wilshaw, met in front of an audience to discuss the issues in ethical fashion.

The evening was hosted by Oxford Mail columnist and fashion consultant Anusha Couttigane.

Oxford Fashion Week continues tonight, with the Cosmopolitan runway show at the Randolf hotel at 8pm.
