Join us for GoGreen NYC’s The Future of Fashion — tomorrow, Thursday, September 26 at 4:15 p.m. This session will explore what’s happening on the frontiers of a global movement to design, source & manufacture responsible apparel, with a hosted networking reception to follow.
Over the past century, the global apparel industry has constructed a web of social and environmental impacts that extend to the far corners of the planet. As supply chains grow increasingly complex and intertwined, even seasoned experts experience trouble building transparency and sustainability principles into the vast layers of technology, geographies and materials. Join us for this industry spotlight on the future of fashion to learn the strategies New York City’s leading edge designers and producers are putting into action in order to build a more responsible supply chain across the entire apparel life cycle — design and innovation, value chain, manufacturing and end-of-life.
Recycled, Reclaimed & Re-Designed!
Garments were created by FIT BFA knitwear students, who turned found sweaters into new fashions focusing on a no-waste concept as part of their designs. Each design will be featured on stage at GoGreen NYC during the Future of Fashion Session.
