The Future of Fashion
Over the past century, the global apparel industry has constructed a web of social and environmental impacts that extend to the far corners of the planet. As supply chains grow increasingly complex and intertwined, even seasoned experts experience trouble building transparency and sustainability principles into the vast layers of technology, geographies and materials. Join us for this industry spotlight on the future of fashion to learn the strategies New York City’s leading edge designers and producers are putting into action in order to build a more responsible supply chain across the entire apparel life cycle—design and innovation, value chain, manufacturing, and end of life.

    I heard about this conference sometime in the last couple of weeks, and was really hoping I could find some way to go for free! I just graduated from Parsons in the spring, and have been trying to keep my face in the NYC fashion industry, so to speak, since I live in CT. This will be an awesome panel, and a really valuable networking event. Wish I could go all day!

    I am the director of social impact for a up and coming handbag line. We have been featured in various online and magazine publications because of our creative spin on nontraditional materials and commitment to people. Going to the panel would be a step in the right direction for us, a small women owned accessories company in NYC. I love reading Ecouterre because of opportunities such as this and Ecotuerre is my go-to guide for the latest innovative sustainable fashion design. Go Ecouterre!!

    I would love to attend this symposium! I believe that we need to start living more sustainably and ethically in all aspects of our life. As a professional in the luxury fashion industry, I think adopting more eco-conscious purchasing and producing habits is crucial in improving society, our social impact on the environment and producing quality products. I enjoy reading Eccoterre because it’s a way for me to stay updated on many interesting and exciting sustainable fashion and design news. I love how Eccoterre illustrates the sustainable lifestyle by providing a chic and inspiring outlook to motivate others. I also write a blog focusing on organic/natural beauty and design so it would be a pleasure to learn more from experts in the field at the GoGreen Conference and inspire more content and information for my blog.
