Make fashion Circular initiative brings together leaders from across the fashion industry, including brands, cities, philanthropists, NGOs, and innovators. Its aim is to stimulate the level of collaboration and innovation necessary to create a new textiles economy, aligned with the principles of the circular economy.
A circular economy for fashion would benefit business, society, the environment, and the people who work to produce our clothes. Projects to date include collaborating with brands and the city of New York in #WearNext, and working with the denim industry to redesign jeans in line with the vision of a circular economy for fashion.
