Sustainability remains one of the top priorities for fashion retailers and brands in the UK. Experts believe now is an excellent time to work towards a cleaner future for fashion, using the disruption caused by Covid-19 as an opportunity to examine how businesses operate, and change for the better.

Sustainability is no longer a “nice to have”, but a mainstream and fundamental foundation from which forward-thinking fashion brands and retailers will be able to attract investment – and customers, who now demand more ethical and environmentally friendly product.

In March 2021, the award-winning Drapers Sustainable Fashion conference will explore the latest developments in cleaning up fashion’s supply chain, and look at how we can build the industry back better after the coronavirus pandemic. The conference will be held virtually for the first time.

Taking place in the same week, the Drapers Sustainable Fashion Awards will celebrate the progress the industry continues to make in becoming more sustainable, from the best circularity initiatives to the textile innovations driving change.

Entries for the awards are now closed.
