Today both people and the environment suffer as a result of the way fashion is made, sourced and consumed. It’s time for a resolution. You know we’re wearing dirty oil and the textile waste is slowly killing the planet. Trendy now, trash tomorrow. The reason we care about sustainable fashion is that fashion is one of the most polluting and energy-intensive industries in the world. Let’s reconnect with our clothes, rather than view them as quick trends or throwaway items. We believe for fashion, the future looks green. We gather 20+ influencers in sustainable fashion and creativity to discuss the challenges, business models, and solutions for the whole ecosystem, and their personal entrepreneurial experience. There will be 100+ participants who share the same passion for growth and change.
#FEWRethinkFashion catwalks will feature a series of compelling sustainable collection from the new generation designers. You will learn to invest in pieces that you will truly fall in love with, placing quality over quantity.
