Orsola De Castro, an ethical designer and the founder of 'Fashion Revolution,' touches on the exploitation of workers, a lack of sustainability, and consumerism in her talk on the fashion industry.

Throughout her talk, she highlights the severe importance of adapting the industry to be more accountable, so that every part of it can be improved. She says that transparency is the most key feature to this, as it enables consumers to understand exactly where their clothing is coming from, and what kind of impact it has on the world. Through this, they're able to develop trust for brands, and the industry is more likely to take steps towards ethical treatment and sustainability in order to maintain consumer loyalty.

With her talk on the fashion industry, De Castro exposes the need for consumers and others in the industry to demand where clothing is coming from, so that they can support those who manufacturer clothing with respect for human dignity, and without carelessly damaging the environment beyond repair.
