Tune in to the Faculty of Science and Engineering’s very own podcast! In this episode we look at fast fashion. Manchester has always been a leader in the world of fashion – from the Industrial Revolution and ‘Cottonopolis’ to the ‘Madchester’ scene of the late 1980s – and today it’s a key player in the ‘fast fashion’ craze. But why is the convenience so controversial? Does fashion have a dark side? We speak to Dr Patsy Perry and Dr Amy Benstead, lecturers on the Fashion Business and Technology course at the Department of Materials and Rachel Cox, a graduate of the Fashion Buying and Merchandising course.


Suitable for ages 11+.
