Come join the NAFA Youth Panel team as they take you on a journey to explore the close intersection between the topics of Natural Heritage and Sustainable Fashion in a local context. In close conversation with two established speakers from Singapore’s fashion industry, a meaningful discussion of SHF’s theme, Natural Heritage, and how it remains relevant in the fashion industry will transpire. This dialogue session will take participants on a slow walk through what Natural Heritage is, followed by a sharing of each speaker’s experience and background before taking a deep dive into the topics at hand. This hybrid programme will allow visitors to tune in from home or onsite. At the end of the session, attendees are also invited to be part of this discourse by joining in the Q&A session.
