1st WEBINAR 16th September 2020 | 15:00 – 16:30
GREEN FASHION. GREEN FUTURE | Is the Future of fashion Green?
With a call for sustainable fashion that is more conscious (buying less, using better materials), fair (social justice in the supply chain, livable pay) and circular (sharing/renting business models, longevity, repairing and clothes with stories), how does a sustainable fashion company look like? What do they produce, where, in what way and in what quantities? Who are their customers? Who are the producers? What materials do they use, how do they sell clothes and for how much?
Insights into the big systemic changes transforming the industry and recreating the trends. Is sustainable collection the answer? Or do we need a strategic change and new business model? How to achieve this?
Big brands, new brands. Collaboration with innovative start-ups and scaling of ideas
More info about the event and the guest speakers will be announced.
