Founder of Fanfare Label, Esther Knight, along with Co-Founder and CEO of RETURE, Nina Van Volkinburg, PhD, were joined by an exciting line-up of fashion sustainability experts to discuss the current landscape of sustainable and circular fashion business practices.
Throughout this talk, the panel explored contemporary circular business models and sustainable innovation that are defining the future of the fashion industry. Our expert line-up also illustrated different ways that individuals and organisations can get involved with circularity principles, and advised on how to learn and thrive within the fashion sustainability sector.
