Harper’s Bazaar: Five key fashion takeaways from COP28 with BLACK PEARL

Samata Pattinson, the CEO and founder of cultural sustainability organisation BLACK PEARL, played a key role in developing the programming for the first ever Entertainment +Culture Pavilion at COP28 – the 28th United Nations Climate Change conference that took place in Dubai in December 2023. This programme put fashion and culture on the agenda at COP for the first time.


Pattinson hosted multiple panels with representatives from leading luxury brands, including Prada and Gucci; interviewed Ellie Goulding about climate action in a fireside chat; and hosted the COP28 Global Action closing event. In this exclusive feature for Harper’s Bazaar, she shares her key takeaways from the global summit, and how this is likely to impact both consumers and the fashion industry at large in 2024.
