Foundry's Sustainability events is a series that will bring forward important debates, values and questions from different industry perspectives.
Sustainability event series continues with a topic that concerns everyone: fashion. And by fashion we mean all clothes, shoes and accessories; we mean the sustainability of the raw materials as well as production and how recycling and upcycling can be a sustainable act.
We have invited two exciting guest speakers to discuss different perspectives on the topic. Stylianee Parascha will talk about what lies behind the scenes of fashion and will also give some practical views on how everyone could make more sustainable choices.
Ishwari Thopte is one of the world's top influencers in fashion-tech and will give interesting views on how the future of fashion is shaping.
After the speeches, we will see a Fashion Show of sustainable fashion! Luxembourg-based businesses have put together a presentation on how sustainable fashion is top-fashion!
Sustainable fashion brands and businesses will have pop-up stores at the Foundry Garage and attendees of this event will have the first opportunity to shop sustainable fashion.
