Dedicated womenswear buying event, Fashion Exposed Now, has announced a partnership with sustainability experts Fashion True Futures.
Elizabeth Park, founder of FTF is presenting the Sustainable Edit in this February’s edition of the Expo to support and showcase some of fashion’s fresh, dynamic and truly innovative labels who are all making a difference towards a more sustainable fashion future.
“True sustainability is the ability to cause little or no damage to the planet and therefore be able to continue for a long time.” Elizabeth Park says.
Fashion True Futures believes in the importance of humanity in harmony with nature. By changing the way we work, we can reduce the impacts of what we do and become leaders in creating positive change.
Our featured brands are visionaries in reducing their impacts on the planet and its people and are all on different journeys towards establishing a better future for fashion. Fashion True Future’s Sustainable Edit presents labels who are demonstrating true solutions in 2 or more of these 5 key areas of sustainability.
