Monday, April 17

This is the theoretical focused workshop of this series. We will start this workshop by talking about the current situation of the fashion industry which is tainted by social & environmental issues. These are all symptoms of a flawed economic model. By understanding the recent recent situation, you can see why it is so difficult to change the industry.

In the second part of this workshop we like to focus on the future. Which is from our perspective a sharp contrast with the existing paradigm. We share our insights, solutions and thoughts on what is necessary to make big changes.
