London Fashion Week round up
The Sustainable Angle collaborated with seven London designers this season, to inspire and support their fabric sourcing through The Sustainable Angle’s Future Fabrics Expo.
The results of this specially commissioned project, in partnership with Arizona Muse were showcased in the Designers showroom at London Fashion Week.
The aim was to communicate the quality, diversity and desirability of a range of sustainable fabrics and materials. By showcasing designs made with innovative and sustainable materials that represent the future of sustainable design, the designers set an inspiring example to other creators.
Through this project showcased at LFW, these designers are now armed with the knowledge to question existing out-dated embedded practices, and are discovering sustainable innovative fibres and fabrics that are desirable and commercially viable.
Several of the designers were so impressed by the quality of the fabrics and style shown in our Future Fabrics Expo, that they integrated them into their main collection.
