Chaired by Reina Lewis, Professor of Cultural Studies at London College of Fashion, with panellists Debbie Danon, from the Three Faiths Forum, Janet Adler of Women’s Interfaith Network, and designer Barjis Chohan.

The panel explores why and how fashion has become central to the expression of personal faith, spirituality, and ethics for women from many different faiths and for women who see themselves as secular. Speakers and respondents discuss how fashion education can work with students, schools, and communities to turn this enthusiasm into career opportunities, demonstrating that design initiative can go hand in hand with personal and spiritual integrity.
