Join couture designer Ronald van der Kemp and The New Fashion Initiative founder Lauren B. Fay for a discussion on van der Kemp's career and his devotion to craftsmanship, upcycling, and reducing waste in fashion. Ronald van der Kemp is a Dutch fashion designer and founder of demi-couture fashion house RVDK, his namesake label, which shows at Paris Couture week and uses exclusively upcycled fabric. Lauren Fay has spent her career committed to improving sustainability, transparency, and accountability in the fashion industry. The New Fashion Initiative (TNFI) was born out of a need to create a more collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to fashion and brings together brands, nonprofits and academics to educate future industry leaders.

There will be a Q&A with the participants during the YouTube premiere of this pre-recorded event.
