Future Fabrics Expo: Sustainable Solutions

Future Fabrics Expo

British non-profit organisation The Sustainable Angle will showcase the latest material innovations at the Future Fabrics Expo in London this week (January 24-25). The exhibition continues the fashion industry’s drive to find sustainable solutions for an increasingly ethical consumer landscape.

Alongside the thousands of commercially available eco-friendly fabrications on display, the two-day showcase will also offer brands and retailers forward-thinking sustainability seminars on everything from supply chains to material sourcing.

The extensive programme features panel discussions and presentations from key thought leaders and industry insiders, including co-founder of global sustainability movement Fashion Revolution’s Orsola de Castro, American model and campaigner Arizona Muse, and Stella McCartney’s global director of sustainability and innovation, Claire Bergkamp.

Since 2011, the Future Fabrics Expo has solidified its standing as the largest showcase of sustainable material solutions, and its popularity is surging. With the fashion industry increasingly recognising the urgency of this matter, such events shouldn’t be the preserve of niche ethical labels, but a blueprint for all brands.
