I just wanted to say that I attended the Claire Heirons' talk a few weeks ago and I really enjoyed it. I thought she was an excellent speaker, and I found the content of the evening very interesting. It was great to have the Q&A session at the end, to discuss ways her knowledge and experience could help us spark ideas for changing the fashion industry, little by little. Overall I thought it was a great session. Thank you.
