Business development, Design / fashion / creative economy, Society / values

The fashion industry will inevitably have to change to remain relevant to a growing digital and conscious consumer base. But how?

The global pandemic has made us rethink our “needs and wants” and has clearly exposed the weaknesses of the business models that form the basis of the fashion industry in the 21st century. To drive the necessary change and strengthen the sustainable fashion community in Düsseldorf, the Change Room team is hosting a networking event that will bring together international experts and thought leaders to engage in discussion with innovators and entrepreneurs in the fashion industry.
