OSU Design Network's Industry Talk - Reflecting Values in Sustainable Fashion Supply Chains

Join us for a conversation with authors Leslie Davis Burns, Oregon State faculty emerita, and Jeanne Carver, Imperial Stock Ranch/Shaniko Wool Company, as they offer insightful narratives about the importance of reconstructing the threads that tie together the fashion brand, supply chain partners and consumers -- all essential for sustainable processes and practices.

In addition, they will weave the stories of five companies addressing the challenges facing today's global fashion industry including evolving sustainable supply chains in fashion and textiles while committing to cultural traditions of a particular place from their recently published book, Stories of Fashion, Textiles, and Place - Evolving Sustainable Supply Chains.
