The Emperor’s New Clothes is an annual event which brings together the fashion and textiles community to discuss the multifaceted challenge of sustainability. It provides a space to discover forward-thinking ideas and initiatives, forge new connections, and have a frank debate about the scale and pace of change in the industry.

The conference is organised by researchers from the School of Design at the University of Leeds and hosts speakers and attendees from a diverse range of backgrounds: industry and academia, design and technology, micro enterprises and industrial giants.

This 2016 conference will take place on Thursday 8 September at the University of Leeds.
