The start of a new year is a good time for reflection.
With a continually growing network it is hard to keep track so we have assessed our members to demonstrate who you could be connecting with. Through our Network we link with almost 2500 members and through our newsletter we connect with almost 7000 subscribers in 73 countries.
The network has a growing international membership with 45% of our members subscribing from outside the UK, demonstrating the Ethical Fashion Forum as the sustainable fashion network for the global community.
An exciting 88% of network members are a part of the global fashion and textiles industry; including 1057 designers, 253 buyers, 239 suppliers, 304 manufacturers and 321 retailers all who are interested or involved in sustainable fashion.
With 172 members of the press and 97 photographers our network has representatives from all levels of the fashion and textiles supply chain. Our industry members actively connect with each other to link with other fashion professionals, source materials, skills and supply chains, post events, share knowledge and ideas, promote their own business or initiatives, stay updated, offer support to each other and to sustainable fashion.
The Ethical Fashion Network and members are helping to engage new generations of designers with 183 fashion and textiles tutors and a rapidly growing student membership. The remaining 12% of our Network consist of consumers, who want to learn more and consume ethically.
Members are able to independently start their own discussions, blogs, events and groups, promote their business and initiatives, and connect with each other. We at EFF also provide support by featuring inspirational members, blogs and discussions; connecting supply chains; holding informational seminars, events and socials; updating news; promoting member and partner organisations' events actively on our network, through our website and via our social networking channels.
