Launched in March 2017, Fashion for Good aims to reimagine how fashion is designed, made, worn and reused. This open and inclusive initiative – with its first physical hub in Amsterdam and a global ambition – was founded by C&A Foundation and brings together brands, retailers, multi-stakeholder initiatives and funders to promote the five essential “Goods” of a new, transformed fashion industry: Good Materials, Good Economy, Good Energy, Good Water and Good Lives.
Specifically, Fashion for Good is changing the apparel industry through innovation and new business models. Its innovation platform scouts for, nurtures and funds early-stage ideas and it scales proven technologies and business models for wider adoption by the industry. Its Apparel Acceleration Fund catalyses access to finance and its open-source Good Fashion Guide shares knowledge to help the apparel industry transform. As a convenor for change, Fashion for Good enables conversation and collaboration, bringing together co-locators at its first hub in Amsterdam as well as visitors to the Fashion for Good Experience to learn more about Good Fashion.
