As one of the world’s most polluting industries, fashion has some major negative environmental impact. Considering that Fashion is a 2.1 Trillion Industry, we need to be alarmed! While it is starting to turn up the dial on its environmental efforts – many brands and retailers are making significant progress in reducing their negative impacts – there is still a long way to go.
Positive change is urgently needed and now is the time to work together to find solutions to the fashion industry’s environmental and social impact. What better than finding solutions collaboratively, where designers, start-ups, academicians and industry come together to find sustainable solutions. We would explore through the Fashion Tech Summit and Hackathon, the possible ways of combining traditional handlooms and Fashion Tech to find some sustainable solutions.
