Why do we have the need as consumers to go for a more spiritual and sustainable fashion? This panel seeks to understand this new form of consciousness from different perspectives.
In a society where fashion is a prominent influence, we will talk to people for whom fashion is more than clothing or commerce, people for whom fashion is a way of contributing to a collective experience of life, and a way to influence what and who we value in our society.
Couldnt make it? We bring the roundtable to you:

Azrya is here to shepherd humanity through the growing pains of awakening to multidimensional awareness with humor and grace.
John-Michael Triana, Director
John-Michael is a director based in Los Angeles, his work revolves around making objective moments subjective to the viewer. He does this by creating polished, mysterious, and captivating worlds conceived from his deep curiosity in existentialism and love and desire; his hope is that everyone sees a different shade of the same color in his work. With a sophisticated eye for creating fashion content, his work is experimental in construction but is always rooted within a unique narrative point of view, concept, or style. He has directed projects for BOTTEGA VENETA, COACH, VOGUE, DAVID YURMAN, CALVIN KLEIN, BANANA REPUBLIC, CARRERA, THE FRYE COMPANY and NIKE. He recently completed his 2nd short film DANCE.
