Lecture at "Fashionsustain. The conference."

FASHIONSUSTAIN. The conference.

A must for all players from the textile and fashion industry when it comes to best practices leading to a transformation of the industry.


Fashionsustain is a platform for the interaction of collaboration and competition – important components for innovative, sustainable technologies that make sustainable business models and new and old markets visible to the whole industry.

The next edition will be held in parallel to Neonyt licensed by Messe Frankfurt in Düsseldorf from 28 to 30 January 2023.

“If we want a breakthrough in sustainability, we need a new normal. We can achieve this with state subsidies for sustainable products and a scoring system similar to the one in the food sector. This is the only way to make sustainability comprehensible to consumers.”

Reinventing itself again and again is part of the DNA of Fashionsustain: whether with an international orientation and on a large stage at international Fashion Weeks and leading trade fairs of the industry, as a spin-off at fashion and lifestyle events, as a regionally oriented City Edition or a multi-day format with strong discussions for end consumers.

Fashionsustain is aimed at innovation and product managers, sustainability and CSR experts, marketing and brand strategists, buyers, HR experts and young professionals from fashion, textiles, sourcing, retail, technology, NGOs, certifiers and startups - and sometimes end consumers directly.
