Meet sustainable fashion blogger Niha Elety.
Social media influencers have opened a new front in consumer purchasing by doing cheap “fashion hauls” from fast-fashion brands such as Shein and Princess Polly. These influencers’ reviews of clothing for their followers are altering our relationship with clothes and consumption. Yet, in Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities, there is a rich and deep relationship with clothing and textiles that still thrives. Sustainable fashion blogger Niha Elety, who boasts more than 30,000 followers, will join us to talk about the intersection of textiles, culture and BIPOC communities and how we can implement Earth-friendly practices in our own daily fashion and consumption.
This event is co-hosted by the World Affairs Council of DFW and Dallas College Sustainability.
$15. Free to Dallas College students, faculty and staff.
