Refash has partnered with Sustainable Fashion Week to bring an exciting opportunity for an emerging upcycled brand to showcase their work for the first time via lifestream at SFW along with 70+ designers who are offering real, innovative solutions to the fashion industry.
SFW is a six-day event happening from September 11th - September 16th across New York, showcasing how sustainable fashion is the future of fashion which will include immersive online experiences and global viewing for a week of runway shows, panel discussions, documentary features, and instructional workshops.
WHY SUSTAINABLE FASHION WEEK?
The Fashion industry is in crisis, partly because of fast fashion and partly over consumption. We are producing at alarming rates and buying at equally alarming rates, what that creates is a recipe for disaster. How and where we make our clothes adds a toxic mix, making the fashion industry 2nd to oil as the most polluting industry!
Sustainable Fashion Week is a necessity to bring awareness to this ongoing problem while providing a platform to emerging sustainable designers that we are in desperate need of.
