Join us for an inspiring evening at PAUSE LONDON EDITION. 

 

BE THE CHANGE NOW:  SOLUTIONS TO BUILD A SUSTAINABLE BRAND

Create awareness and knowledge of sustainable fashion.
Today, we might feel powerless and overwhelmed by the consequences of climate change, particularly due to the impact the fashion industry has had over the years.
The need to do better is on everyone’s mind. We decided to focus on the positive side of things, on the already existing alternative ways to produce our clothes in a more sustainable and ethical way. Eco-friendly resources such as recycled materials or new innovative ways to produce fabrics are already existing. 
 
Tomorrow, We want to give you the tools for the possibility of a better future, and allow you to be the change, NOW.
 
What will the panel cover?
● Understand the sourcing perspective
● Present key alternative fabrics available in the current market
● Present ways for brands to embrace sustainability
Create awareness and knowledge of sustainable fashion.

 

Sustainable clothing refers to fabrics derived from eco-friendly resources, such as sustainably grown fiber crops or recycled materials. It also refers to how these fabrics are made. Istituto Marangoni conducted research into some of the most innovative and accessible sustainable textile solutions and has put them together in this panel.
