Wamda is hosting ''Industry session: Is technology the solution for sustainability in fashion?'', a panel discussion on August 6th, at 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM, at the Wamda X space in Dubai. Register your interest to attend. 

Every so often the fashion world is rocked by scandals and problems that force it to readdress its practices. From size 0 models to working conditions in factories across Asia, the sector, like its clothes, has had to stay on trend. Now, the buzzword is sustainability. As the second most polluting industry after oil and gas, brands and manufacturers are exploring new ways to cut back on their environmental impact and technology seems to be golden solution.

In this panel session we will discuss how technology is being used to cut back on wastage, develop new materials and whether consumers in the Middle East really care about sustainability. The discussion will feature:

- Kunal Kapoor, The Luxury Closet. 

- Dr. Haifa Al Anjari, Dean of the College of Fashion and Design in Dubai.

- Fatma Mulla, fashion designer, FMM.

*Confirmed panelists to be updated.

Please note that seats are limited - register your interest by filling the form and a team member from Wamda will reach out.
