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.
On 10-11 March 2021, the award-winning Drapers Sustainable Fashion conference explored the latest developments in cleaning up fashion’s supply chain, and looked at how we could build the industry back better after the coronavirus pandemic.
The Drapers Sustainable Fashion awards also celebrated the progress the industry continues to make in becoming more sustainable, from the best circularity initiatives to the textile innovations driving change.
