As changemakers sat next to industry peers, the evening explored digital concepts in a bid to move away from waste and a more circular economy, with the aim to provide a broad overview of the benefits and solutions that support a better future for the industry, as well as dissect what barriers there are to progress.
The evening comes as one of the many initiatives the industry has recently launched in dedicated to committing to a more circular economy. The fashion industry has talked the talk for years, 2022 seems to be the year it's finally walking the walk.
