Changing the fashion industry and making it more aware of global humanitarian and environmental concerns, demands expertise, and above all, passion.

That's the view of Patrick Duffy, the founder of Global Fashion Exchange – an international sustainable fashion platform – who led a UN conference panel this week, on the use of clothing as a vehicle for change.

The UN Department of Public Information, in partnership with NGOs, hosted stakeholders in a dialogue on fashion sustainability; including the way in which even chances of resolving conflict can be improved by what we wear.

Mr Duffy spoke with Natalie Hutchison about why this partnership is key in stitching together a sustainable global industry.
