WATER. PEACE. FASHION.
The blue planet, our Earth. Around two thirds of its surface are covered in water. The adult human body is also made up of 70 percent water. Without water there would be no agriculture, no industry – and no life. But what happens when water becomes scarce? The upcoming Fashionsustain is dedicated to this topic, which will have a decisive impact on our future.
