Fashionsustain, a new two-day event in the textile industry which will centre around three key sub-themes; material, production and circularity is all set to be held in January 2018 as part of Berlin Fashion Week.
Each theme will be addressed by a keynote speaker and subsequent break-off discussions regarding the latest developments, best practice and future practice for the industry.
