Event Details



We’re delighted to announce that David Hieatt, co-founder of Hiut Denim and an authentic entrepreneur with a story to tell about sustainability, fashion, creativity and collaboration, will be our guest keynote speaker for the return of the first Circular Textiles Breakfasts events.

On the 23rd October, Future Focus and The University of Exeter Business School will host a virtual breakfast in which David will talk about why brands with purpose are brands which prosper.

His experience is extensive and illuminating – from Howies to Hiut Denim – and the challenges he’s faced growing UK fashion brands have plenty to tell us not just about the fashion industry, but about the positives and negatives of building a business in Cornwall. (His most recent experience, in South Wales, offers plenty of parallels.)
