The fashion industry is in crisis. Over-consumption of goods has led to an alarming rate of production, creating a recipe for disaster. How and where we make our clothes adds a toxic mix, making the fashion industry second to oil as the most polluting industry. Sustainable Fashion Week is a necessity to bring awareness to this ongoing problem while providing a platform to emerging sustainable designers.
By identifying alternative methods of clothing production, SFW2021 will show how we can still be fashionable at NO cost to our planet. These Designers will showcase recycled, repurposed, renewable, reusable, and eco-friendly options for creating clothing which offers real solutions to the crisis overtaking the fashion industry.
Sustainable Fashion Week US Season 2 was sponsored by Rutgers University, Cero Tucson, Victoria Grace Fashion, Fashion Institute of Technology, House of BAV and Magpies & Peacocks.
