Sustainable Fashion: A Brand New Bag

Last night I attended a lecture on sustainable fashion and the implications to the environment of our current production models. Coming from a sister industry (interior design) I wasn’t sure what to expect from the panel, but the depth of knowledge was fantastic and thought provoking. It’s inspired me to look more closely at the supply chains that I work with and what their impact on the environment is. Below is an overview of the program, but I would encourage you to look into The Sustainability Practice Network and The Brooklyn Fashion & Design Accelerator

Moderator: Debera Johnson, Executive Director, Brooklyn Fashion & Design Accelerator; Executive Director, Pratt Center for Sustainable Design;

Kate Daly, Executive Director, Center for the Circular Economy at Closed Loop Partners

Megan Meiklejohn, Sustainable Materials & Transparency Manager, Eileen Fisher
Meghan Ryan, Manager, Advisory Services, BSR, Founder of Sourcemap

Sustainable fashion — the alternative to fast fashion — compels us to rethink the way we buy and sell our clothes. Falling under the umbrella, or may we say parasol of sustainable design, this design ethos emphasizes the environmental and social impact of how we choose to dress and furthermore, how these choices are inextricably linked to the present and future well-being of our planet and civil society. The current global clothing supply chain touches all aspects of sourcing, producing and manufacturing, often resulting in multi-national corporations which employ methods that drive prices down but fail to reflect the true costs on society. Now eco-conscious players like Eileen Fisher, Stella McCartney, and Patagonia, are disrupting the fashion market to provide sustainable alternatives — garments with a longer lifespan and a smaller carbon footprint that minimize environmental impact.
Please join our panel of experts to explore how we can support the emergence of sustainable fashion as a stronger sub-sector within the industry.

Co-Sponsored by:

The Sustainability Practice Network (SPN) is a New York based inter-disciplinary community of professionals who seek to learn and share knowledge to advance sustainable development across sectors and disciplines. We mobilize our members to practice sustainability in their lives and work. Our mission is to raise awareness of the importance of individual and corporate sustainability and thereby create a more stable and equitable world.

Looking to mark 40 years producing head-turning textiles, Dedar brought together the designer Martino Gamper and photographer Brigitte Niedermair, long-time friends but never collaborators. A slow-loading Google search led the pair to hidden patterns, an accidental index of artists and their favourite colours. Dedar fixed these patterns on remarkable fabrics and Gamper gave them form and volume. The results are a fitting tribute to a history of innovation, hand-craft and a commitment to the creative spirit. And, more than anything, proof that there’s power in a union.

The Dedar and Hermes fall collections are here. These are two beautiful collections showing a concise and tight design aesthetic from both houses. Dedar brings some extraordinary sheers as well as complicated and striking weaves and Hermes builds on the past two collections.
