Emerging Fashion Designers and Brands are creating a NEW future of fashion. More want to be transparent, they want to be responsible and they want to be mindfully designing and manufacturing products with a focus on fair trade, the circular economy, reducing risks and improving conditions for all stakeholders in the supply chain.
When starting out and launching a new business it can be difficult to navigate exactly how to establish a responsible supply chain that follows best practice, whether you are sourcing locally off-shore.
Fortunately, Ethics and Sustainability are at the forefront of the fashion industry conversations now, and this means AWARENESS is growing. We ALL have a responsibility, as business owners, as consumers, to consciously make better choices, better decisions. Fortunately, we have some amazing, inspiring leaders in our industry advocating positive and progressive change.
So where can you start to increase your awareness?
