To the programme
Hotspot for future topics
In addition to the programme, Messe Frankfurt has launched the new conference format FashionSustain dedicated to responsible innovations in textiles and fashion. Moreover, the #FashionTech has moved into the same loation. The power station is now the hotspot for the future-oriented topics in fashion which are innovation and sustainability as well digitization and technology.
As part of the PrePeek promotion, exhibitors gain a direct channel of communication to end customers. Bloggers and influencers select collection pieces from participating labels, showcase them in photo shoots and write reports about them. The partners of the promotion are Kleiderei.com and Fashion Changers.
Exciting and highly committed labels, a wonderful audience of trade visitors and an unrivalled thematic spectrum. The Greenshowroom and the Ethical Fashion Show Berlin exceeded all expectations, in January 2018. Altogether, 170 labels from 26 countries presented sustainable collections for the 2018/19 autumn / winter season.
The Catwalk Show
That was our catwalk show in January 2018. Experience in retrospect exclusive looks for 2018/19. For the first time, the show combined Salonshow and Ethical Fashion on Stage together.
High-fashion, luxury and design combined with sustainability – the Greenshowroom presents selected collections that unite these attributes. Ecological aspects, transparency and social characteristics constitute our understanding of sustainability developed in cooperation with Get Changed! The Fair Fashion Network.
At least 70 percent of the exhibits need to fulfil our sustainability criteria. In addition, the exhibitor should be able to cover at least one ecological and one social aspect. Transparency aspects can help to verify social and ecological engagement.
Fashion designed and manufactured reducing its environmental impacts from raw material and trim sourcing via production to the consumer use and finally its disposal or reuse – for example:
- Aim to use only renewable resources throughout the supply chain
- Avoidance of waste caused by production steps for and by the use of products
- Avoidance of toxic substances throughout the supply chain
- Following a concept of reduce, reuse, recycle and/or compost
- Support of research and innovation towards more sustainable products
Fashion designed and manufactured in conditions that respect human rights and the continuous support of sustainable development – for example:
- Compliance with ILO conventions (International Labour Organisation)
- Payment of living wages
- Respect for intellectual property
- Support of handicraft and traditional skills
- Support of local markets, co-operatives and innovative business models
A fashion business running its operations as transparent as possible in order to be able to control and sustainably develop its supply chains – for example:
- Clear communication of the sustainability strategy and the active participation in knowledge exchange and joint development e. g. through multi-stakeholder dialogues
- Knowing all suppliers involved in the manufacture of products and willingness to confidentially reveal them in order to verify sustainability claims
- Support of co-operation that creates social and environmental benefits
