Technology, sustainability and innovation are important drivers of the textile and fashion industry that will revolutionise the sector and its processes and production methods – and the international conference format was dedicated to precisely these topics from 6 to 8 July. The focus this time was on sustainability in the context of the circular economy, digitalisation, diversity and innovation.
CIRCULARITY. DIVERSITY. RETAIL.
Minimalism "here", loss of jobs "there"? Will production will be more regional/local in the future? Will sustainability be more important or is it just a hype and we will fall back into old patterns? Digital transformation is accelerating at unprecedented speed across the entire textile and fashion industry. This requires all stakeholders to shift their mind-set towards agility to scale in disruptive environments. We have to think holistically – in terms of production standards, but also when it comes to the inclusion of the most diverse target groups. Fashion is about self-expression, identity, political statements and reflects societal issues. What is the status quo of fashion and where is the journey going - Quo vadis, fair fashion? The speakers at Fashionsustain discussed these and many other topics in the digital FFW Studio.
