Resource efficiency experts WRAP, which leads the SCAP initiative, will present three short sessions in this hour long workshop. The workshop will focus on:
- Re-inventing how we design, market and sell clothes.
- Re-thinking how we use and consume clothes.
- Re-defining what is possible through re-use and recycling of textiles.
Anne Prahl will start off showcasing new initiatives, processes and technology that can reduce the environmental impact of clothing followed by Ben Thomas from nonprofit fashion organisation Made BY. Ben will discuss sourcing and benchmarking sustainable fibres for sustainable design. Carol Rose will finish the talks with the relevance of sustainability in the fashion industry tying the whole event together and giving you the opportunity to see how the sustainable fashion industry works from every angle.
The SCAP workshops will be followed by an introduction and showing of the AEG film the “Next Black.” New technologies, sustainability concerns and innovative minds are transforming our clothes. In the “Next Black” documentary film, you meet the designers, innovators and leaders that are shaping the future of what we will be wearing. This is not a film about what’s new, it’s about what’s next.
