FASHIONSUSTAIN

Technology, sustainability and innovation are important drivers of the fashion and textile industry that will revolutionise the sector and its processes and production methods. International conference format Fashionsustain is dedicated to precisely these topics. It shows how the interaction of collaborations, new technologies and sustainability leads to applied innovations. Start. Collaborating. Now.

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.

ONE. TWO. THREE.

One platform. Two conferences. Three pillars. Former power station Kraftwerk Berlin is the venue of the two conferences Fashionsustain and #Fashiontech. Forward-looking talks are complemented by the andrefreshingly creative vibe of the Thinkathon and a highly inspirational Showcase of Change. These three pillars,  – the conferences, Thinkathon and Showcase of Change. These three pillars,  – the conferences, Thinkathon and Showcase of Change,  – form a completely new and cutting-edge conference model.
