Conscientious Consumption: Sustainability and the Future of Luxury

Los Angeles has always been the fashion world’s barometer of lifestyle shifts. Sally Singer, the fashion news and features director of Vogue, asks four leading Los Angeles designers about their strategies, aesthetics, and philosophies in response to extraordinary environmental and economic changes. What is the modern relationship between the ethical and the luxurious (for designer and consumer)? Singer will be joined by renowned jewelry designer Tom Binns; the "Godfather of Denim" and Goldsign designer, Adriano Goldschmied; Dosa founder and designer, Christina Kim; and Kate Mulleavy, one of the design duo behind Rodarte.

The discussion will be followed by a Q&A session.
