Focusing on strategies and processes for fashion businesses to take the lead on issues around climate change, social responsibility, environmental sustainability, and circularity, the 2020 version of the Fashion and Sustainability Summit will shift from a one-day on-campus event to a series of 20 weekly Zoom conversations every Thursday from July 9 through November 19 (1-2 p.m. ET).
The Fashion and Sustainability Summit 2020 Series will feature solutions-focused sessions in which fashion companies will share their actions, approaches, and lessons learned when running a business with environmental and social responsibility in mind.
Expert guest speakers will include representatives from:
- Eileen Fisher
- Marc Jacobs
- Dr. Scholl's
- Council of Fashion Designers of America
- Ethical Fashion Initiative
- Sustainable Apparel Coalition
Several LIM College faculty members will also serve as presenters and LIM students will participate as moderators and attendees.
The series will cover topics such as supply chain transparency, green chemistry, advances in technology, and zero waste design. It will explore sustainability not only from an ethical perspective, but also from a business point of view.
Sponsors include Ecolife Yarn by Belda Llorens, KenDor Textiles, and the Accessories Council.
