Future Fashion Event
After an incredible first event focused on ethical fashion, run by The Fashion Advocate, it was refreshing to sit down and hear about the nitty gritty side of the industry with The Possibility Project, Elk, and Seljak Brand.
“Creating a kinder fashion industry has become a necessity, our growing separation from supply chains has resulted in diverted economic value, environmental waste and a loss of the wonderful connection we should be having with our clothing.”
The conversation was formed from the above statement. I was made aware of the complexity of sustainable production and encouraged by the innovative technology these brands are implementing to reuse and upcycle the world’s waste.
Sitting in a room with people scribbling frantically on notepads, listening to every word these intelligent individuals had to say about the state of our fashion industry, was refreshing. I had to blink my eyes a few times to believe it: usually, it’s just me with the notebook.
