I’m excited to announce that Production Mode will be participating in several great events in Chicago this June. First up:
This Wednesday, June 3rd, please join me for the one-night only screening of the True Cost film at the Patio Theater. The film documents the detrimental effects of the fast fashion industry on consumers, producers, and our environment. Production Mode will be part of the panel discussion after the film, along with the director, producer, and other Chicago Fair Trade members. Ethical fashion brands including Production Mode will be on display and for sale before and after the film, and on hand to answer questions about slow vs. fast fashion and transparency in sourcing. Below is a video clip of me speaking about many of the film’s themes at last year’s Greenheart Transforms conference.
Next up, we’ll be participating in our first Dose Market, Sunday, June 14th, at Venue One, 1034 W. Randolph in the West Loop. Tickets are $8 online, $10 at the door, both include free drink ticket for 21+ … online tickets include a $15 gift certificate to Pretty Quick and a chance to win a trip from Mr & Mrs Smith. Tons of talented Chicago artists, artisans, and purveyors of slow food and fashion will be on-hand. Meet the makers and help build the local design community here in Chicago!
