At these events, you can discover new trends, gain access to suppliers, meet potential manufacturing and business partners.With this in mind, we will be preparing an updated monthly guide for students of our Sustainable Fashion Incubation Program outlining major sustainable fashion events around the world. The following is the list of October events.
Art, crafts, sustainable fashion made in Portugal, sustainable raw material, organic fabrics, meeting with sustainable makers, local cuisine and cultural activities await you at the FIA!
The goals for sustainable development set by the United Nations for the next few years can be a great starting point for finding the problems that will help you solve.
Collaborative work between designers and artisans from traditional communities: a debate on the appropriation of intangible heritage from the 2003 Unesco Convention
Slow Innovation Brands argues that for fashion to be truly sustainable the production plan and eco-marketing must go beyond the environmental pillar with the choice of greener fibers. Also, the protection of intangible heritage and the recognition of the work of creation of artisans is essential for fashion to be sustainable also in the social pillar!
To help you find the tools for this circularity we have prepared a guide with contacts of suppliers of these materials located in the United States and Europe. These contacts are part of the database of our Innovation and Entrepreneurship Program in Sustainable Fashion.
