The second Future Fabrics Expo organized by The Sustainable Angle was hosted on November 7-9 at the London College of Fashion. It provided a physical showcase of roughly 650 fashion fabrics with a reduced environmental impact which looked at biodiversity, water, waste and energy impacts and benefits, as well as interactive information and videos. The expo was intended to inform and inspire fashion designers and buyers about the variety, availability and viability of sustainable fabrics.
The expo was visited by more than 500 fashion industry professionals and fashion students. Companies in attendance ranged from independent sustainable designers to large scale and luxury companies including H&M, ASOS, Puma, Avery Dennison, Ted Baker, Marks & Spencer, Ada Zanditon, Christopher Raeburn, People Tree, and Zalando.
Organisations including the Ethical Fashion Forum, TED, Redress, and the Royal College of Art also visited, which will in turn enable a wider audience to benefit from the expo content.
Fabrics on show ranged from recycled and regenerated performance fibres such as Newlife® recycled polyester (represented by C.L.A.S.S.) and recycled nylon from Hyosung, to organic, cellulosic and local fibres such as Crabyon®, Lenzing Tencel®, 100% European traceable linen from CLUB Masters of Linen, fully certified organic pima cotton from Swiss Organics, and luxury Peruvian alpaca. Processes including laser finishing for denim, innovative dyeing techniques and natural performance attributes were also explored.
The Sustainable Angle’s London studio houses both exhibited and new sustainable fashion fabrics which are available to view throughout the year by appointment.
