Held in London’s brand new spectacular and sustainable venue, The Crystal, the SOURCE Summit 2013 took the theme of generating momentum towards sustainability in the fashion industry in the wake of the 24.04.2013 Rana Plaza garment factory collapse in Bangladesh, which killed over 1,000 people. In spite of this tragic leitmotif, the event had a surprisingly positive vibe.
