On July 6th we are organizing an event on innovation is sustainable fashion. During this event we will bring up the whole process from having a sustainable fashion idea to production to marketing to consumption and back again with reusing and repurposing textile. Further there will be conversations of future trends and environmentally friendly ways to create yarn.

On July 6th we are hosting a special event focussed on Innovation in Sustainable Fashion! We would like to welcome entrepreneurs, enthusiasts, visionaries and simply passionated people. Together we will look at what is happening in the world of sustainable fashion and speculate what the future will be.

Co-created trend forecaster Kirsten Eerland from Proef we offer a strong program focussed on innovation in sustainable fashion.

So come and meet likeminded people and get to talk to visionaries and established brands and learn from each other!
