TALK’S NOT CHEAP: Never one to hold back, Katharine Hamnett implored fashion customers to take a stand, and urge brands to be more responsible and sustainable, during a talk at Liberty in London, where she also showed her spring 2018 collection.

“We have to write to brands about going organic. We have to boycott brands that have bad labor practices and disgusting practices — particularly slave labor. Garment manufacturing should be a feminist issue. Women do massive purchasing because women do buy for men — apart from themselves,” the designer said during a Q&A with Sarah Mower on Thursday.
