Why big brands are investing in sustainability start-ups

When Fashion for Good first launched four years ago, it started with a handful of brands and retailers as its corporate partners. Now, it counts manufacturers among its collaborators too. “We realised how important it was to get those upstream suppliers at the same table,” said Brittany Burns, director of strategy and development at Fashion for Good. “We felt like it was really important to create these opportunities for a cross-pollination of ideas, but [also] co-development across the industry.”

Back to the future: the role of technology in solving major challenges

In  Robert Zemeckis’ film Back to the Future , the main characters navigate between the past and the future in a long process of discovery and transformation. Throughout these trips, Marty (one of the protagonists) has as main mission to repair the damage created by him in history. Although fiction and reality intersect more than we think, we still do not have the ability to travel through time or repair the damage that we have been creating throughout history. We know today that the great environmental or, in general, society challenges result from human intervention (global warming, social inequality, etc.). We also know that reversing these damages is particularly difficult because, unlike the characters in the film, we cannot change the past. We can, however, change the future and the consequences of our actions.

More job cuts: The cost of circular fashion

Circularity has become a priority for fashion, but labour experts are concerned that without deliberate planning, the industry’s efforts on the environment could cost millions of workers their jobs. They also worry that in cases where new jobs are created, they won’t offer paths to better livelihoods that the United Nations and others have called for employers globally to provide.

Zalando launches circularity pilot

Customers increasingly want to know more about the products they buy. They want transparent information and advice on how to care for their clothes to prolong their life. Currently only one percent of clothing is recycled into new materials, garments of today largely become the waste of tomorrow.

To learn how we can tackle this problem at scale and use technology to enable our customers to close the loop, Zalando has teamed up with sustainable fashion innovation platform, Fashion for Good, and Berlin based startup, circular.fashion, to develop the “redeZIGN for Circularity” capsule collection, which is now available to customers in all 17 Zalando markets. The capsule collection consists of five pieces and is produced by Zalando’s sustainability flagship label ZIGN. The collection offers customers the opportunity to learn more about the origin of products and how to extend the product’s life, bringing Zalando closer to its goal of applying the principles of circularity and extending the life of at least 50 million items by 2023 as stated in its do.MORE strategy.

Things to do: de uitagenda voor deze maand

De Fashion for Good Experience is een interactief modemuseum dat gebruikt maakt van de nieuwste technologieën. Het museum vertelt de verhalen achter de kleding die je draagt en laat je zien hoe je zelf actie kunt ondernemen en een positieve invloed kunt hebben op de mode-industrie.

Het nieuwe thema REBORN duikt in de merken die zich richten op circulariteit, door biologisch afbreekbare materialen of gerecyclede kleding en schoenen te creëren en proberen het gebruik van nieuwe materialen zoveel beperkt te houden. Naast dit thema wordt een tijdelijke tentoonstelling van upcyclede vintage bruidsjurken getoond door ontwerper Tess van Zalinge en weddingplanner Lotte Grossman onder het merk “tesswithlotte”.
