Fashion businesses should pool their resources and industry leaders must learn from their peers. Only then will the fashion industry achieve lasting, sustainable change, says Jonas Eder-Hansen. My favorite quotes from this piece, which I think go right to heart of this discussion :

To outsiders, fashion is not known for championing political, environmental or social causes. However, as one of the world’s most powerful industries — and a communication platform with the power to influence how consumers think and act — the fashion industry has a responsibility to create real and sustainable change.

There are three key areas the could drive this change: design, consumption and networking.
