Provision of training, workshops, expertise, or strategic advice on sustainable fashion development and consumption and the planning and creation of innovative products, services, and experiences targeted toward the vegan market.
The intersection of fashion and sustainability is a vast and complex topic that I can detangle and simplify in educational and business contexts. The rise of sustainable fashion represents a macro trend for all segments of the industry and has the objective to address, assess and reduce the various negative impacts associated with the fashion product lifecycle. By untangling the meaning of current and relevant concepts such as transparency, circularity, degrowth, ‘slow design’, and greenwashing, I offer strategies to initiate or continue an eco-manufacturing process for companies of all sizes, proposing concrete actions to take a progressive and innovative whole-of-business approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR).
