Fashion for Good calls for industry-wide collaboration to transform the apparel industry by gathering today’s innovators, fashion and sustainability thought leaders in Amsterdam.
As a holistic and inclusive open-source initiative, it invites the global fashion industry to reinvent the way fashion is designed, made, worn and reused.
Fashion for Good aims to promote the five “Goods” of a new, transformed fashion industry: Good Materials, Good Economy, Good Energy, Good Water, and Good Lives. Fashion for Good enables the fashion industry to embrace innovation, change its business models and adopt a totally new mindset in pursuit of this goal.
Leslie Johnston of C&A Foundation said: “Open and inclusive, Fashion for Good will share all knowledge and lessons learned from its activities. In doing so, we want to inspire all stakeholders in the fashion industry to work toward a future in which everyone—farmers, workers, customers, and communities – can flourish.”
“Fashion for Good for me is distinctive in that it focuses on the getting innovations scaled up and embedded into the industry,” says Leslie. What is really exciting to her is that there are a lot of innovations and ideas in the world, but if you can’t get the idea embedded in the industry, it will be wasted. That is the core of the work of Fashion for Good according to Leslie. It searches the world for the best innovations that can create good fashion, but it also works with the innovators to embed them in the way the industry works.
