9th Future Fabrics Expo 2020 Seminar Series in Partnership with Parley | Speaker and Programme Announcements
We are so pleased to announce the full programme of our Seminar Series in partnership with Parley accompanying the 9th Future Fabrics Expo coming up 29-30 January 2020!
“Our vision is to facilitate and support a re-imagined fashion industry where creativity and designing for sustainability contributes positively to people and the planet. As much as fashion is part of the problem it’s also part of the solution by following regenerative and restorative principles, a circular systems approach and sustainable design: it can turn into a powerful force for positive change to help tackle the climate crisis, biodiversity loss and depletion of finite resources. Fashion can be a vehicle for change, towards a future where those who create, manufacture, communicate and experience fashion are empowered to be change-makers.”
Nina Marenzi, founder and director of The Sustainable Angle’s Future Fabrics Expo
In addition to our thousands of globally sourced textiles and materials, the Future Fabrics Expo is home to our popular seminar programme which features a dozen panel discussions held by thought leaders, experts and change-makers. This year, our panelists will tackle topics such as Regenerative Agriculture, AI & 3D Design, Biodegradability & Compostability, Circularity, and so much more…
Mini seminars – Sustainable Sourcing 101 (20 minutes each), will be held in our Extra Seminar Space in between the main seminar panels, to introduce the basics of sustainable fabrics sourcing. The mini seminars will be hosted by members of The Sustainable Angle team, as well as a special Manufacturers edition by Faik Emir Ozturk from Orbit Consulting.
