Delivering a blueprint of the circular fashion industry

CDBA PODCAST

This Friday, Join the METTA events in partnership with the British Council as they sit down with a couple of designers and brands as we talk about how to deliver a blueprint of the circular fashion industry - shifting from a linear model to a circular model. For the longest time, the fashion industry (especially fast fashion) has been subject to a lot of criticism due to its negative impact on the environment. From using large volumes of water and toxic chemicals when dying clothes, to the use of non-biodegradable materials, the clothing industry has really contributed significantly to the detriment of the environment, and this is compounded by the fact that clothing is a basic human necessity. In this discussion, they will be unpacking ‘Circular fashion’ and how can designers can play a role in protecting the environment by producing clothes, shoes or accessories that are designed, sourced, and distributed with the intention to be used and circulate responsibly. Additionally, how can we effectively as a society, produce clothes that last for as long as possible in their most valuable form, and hereafter return safely to the biosphere when no longer of human use. The current panel is comprised of: 1. Lynda Nanu Ng'eno, Founder and Creative Director of Favoloso By Nanu 2. Oliver Asike, Creative Director at 2ManySiblings, Thrift social Nairobi and Vitimbi The Goal: Dissecting the dynamics of achieving circularity and its viability in the fashion business. Theme: Delivering a blueprint of the circular fashion industry - shifting from a linear model to a circular model. Time: 5th March 2021. 11 am to 12.15 pm
