June Production Mode Events!

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 MarketSunday, 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!
