Sustainability is a heady topic in the luxury clothing world and, while good for business and essential for our planet, the messaging can get muddled and consumers (along with many retailers and brands) often fail to see the advantages.

Join Gladson and MR magazine for an enlightening virtual panel on Wednesday, June 23rd at 11:30 EST. Hopefully, this discussion on sustainability will challenge us as an industry to promote our trade and increase awareness of why wearing custom/made-to-measure clothing is a sustainable and smart investment.

Moderating our panel is Nick Carvell, a freelance menswear and grooming journalist based in the UK. Carvell started visiting Savile Row while working at GQ as associate style editor, sparking a keen interest in the tailoring world. He then worked in-house at Mr. Porter, British GQ, and The Jackal, before going solo as a brand consultant and host.

On the panel:

Lucia Bianchi Maiocchi – CSR Manager of Sustainability at Vitale Barberis Canonico

Franceso Magri – Regional Manager of Central & Eastern Europe at The Woolmark Company

Bambi Semroc – SVP of Center for Sustainable Lands and Waters at Conservation International. 

Dan Trepenair – Founder and CEO of Articles of Style
