Premium fashion trade show Jacket Required has announced that British fashion designer Christopher Raeburn will be taking to the stage to talk about the industry’s movement towards slow fashion, and showcase a new collection under the newly re-branded Raeburn label.
Raeburn, who was named as the new global creative director of Timberland in October, will be joining a panel of industry experts - including Hans Ates from Blackhorse Lane Ateliers and Stacey Wood from King & Tuckfield - in an ‘In Talks With’ session, where they will talk to British fashion commentator and Professor of Diversity Caryn Franklin about ‘Crafted to Last – the movement towards slow fashion’.
Commenting on the announcement in a statement, Lindsay Hoyes, Event Director of Jacket Required said: “The concept of fashion for life, the move away from fast fashion and how the retailer and end consumers can embrace this movement is going to be a fascinating discussion.”
