Drapers Sustainable Fashion Awards: Changemakers Week

In light of the growing public health concerns around the Covid-19 coronavirus, we have transformed the 2020 Drapers Sustainable Fashion Awards from a physical event into a week-long content-based celebration running across Drapers’ print and digital channels from 6-10 July.

Developed in partnership with ISKO and Duo, the inaugural Changemakers Week will allow us to shine a spotlight on the businesses and brands really making a difference.

At the start of the week, we will unveil the winners of this year’s Drapers Sustainable Fashion Awards alongside a special digital report detailing their achievements. Throughout the week, excerpts from the report will be published on Drapers’ newly designed website and promoted via our social channels, culminating in publication of a special edition of the print magazine on Friday 10 July.

From this year’s Sustainable Fashion Champion, to the leaders behind the winners of Brand of the Year and the best supply chain and carbon footprint initiatives, we hope this series of interviews and profiles will act as a roadmap for progress towards creating a more sustainable fashion industry. The report will also include our 2020 Ones to Watch, a list of 20 new and emerging sustainability-focused businesses handpicked by the Drapers team.

On Wednesday 8 July, we will host a Changemakers focused webinar as part of the Drapers Connects series, featuring an interview with sustainability pioneer and designer Christopher Raeburn. Click here to register.
