06 Sep Fashion Summit Day 2 Recap
Today, the second day of the Fashion Summit took place at the HKCEC.
At the Fashion Summit, participants from around the world exchange insights on the latest sustainable fashion trends, technology, best practice, solutions, and opportunities.
This year’s theme ‘Achieving the Goals’ is about raising awareness for the important role of the fashion industry in creating a more sustainable future, especially within the industry. Fashion Summit (Hong Kong) brings together leading academics, key players from the fashion industry, different NGOs, media, and leaders to create a sustainable fashion industry in Asia. The 2-Day Event includes many conferences with different sustainabiliy matters.
Keynote presentations in the morning took place and were held by various speakers such as the Board Director of the C&A Foundation, the Founder of the Textile Clothing Footwear Resource Centre of Western Australia Inc., or even by the CEO of Re:Newcell.
The first panel discussion in the late morning dealt with”The Positioning of Asia-Pacific in Fashion Design’s Sustainability” with members of the panel belonging to, e.g., the Textile Council of Hong Kong, Jeanswest Corporation, members of the HKSAR Legislative Council (Textiles & Garment) or the CEO of MOTIF, ALVANON.
In the afternoon of the second day at Fashion Summit, panel discussions then entailed topics like “Techstyle for Sustainability”, “Interdisciplinary Collaboration in Sustainable Fashion Education”, “Getting Sustainable Fashion to Market” or “Small Steps, Big Impact, Act Together!” including sustainable solutions and options for a more sustainable lifestyle and the vision of a sustainable fashion industry, especially in Asia. Speakers of the panel belonged to well-known companies such as Lablaco, The R Collective, Cobalt Fashion, Fashion Clinic, Pret-A-Dress or Kapok ltd.
Summits like these are great events to get in contact with stakeholders of the sustainable (fashion) industry, and therefore it was no surprise that our CEO Ozan Oezdemir met important people of the sustainability industry, for example, Mr. Albert Brenninkmeijer, Board Director of the C&A Foundation.
