Technology and digitalisation, sustainability and innovation are major drivers of the fashion and textile industries. The themes that propel and transform the industries also have a platform at the Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics from 25 to 27 September 2019. The programme for the trade fair's 25th anniversary will therefore feature a special event in the All About Sustainability Zone: Fashionsustain, the conference format associated with the sustainability trade show Neonyt, is coming to Shanghai. Here on the morning of 26 September, global thought leaders will gather on the Fashionsustain stage to discuss the impact of socioeconomic and environmental changes on design, production and retail. Currently confirmed are speakers from industry giant Hugo Boss, the Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel and the innovations platform Fashion for Good. Simultaneous interpretation from Chinese to English and vice versa will be provided.
"Who made my clothes?" More and more consumers are demanding transparency across the textile supply chain. The British NGO Fashion Revolution was the first to voice this question and calls on brands to improve their practices. Certificates are one way for brands to strengthen consumer trust. Trade buyers will find testing and certification services such as Control Union Certification (Shanghai), Intertek Testing Services Shanghai Ltd. and Qima Limited in the All About Sustainability Zone.
Fashionsustain is driving the change in the fashion industry on the other side of the world too. On 20 September the LA Fashion Festival 2019 will host the conference under the heading "The change of fashion is now". This is the Neonyt conference's second appearance in the USA after its first successes in July at Texworld USA in New York. From Berlin to the world: The global exchange enabled by Fashionsustain is supported by Lenzing. The fibre manufacturer will provide info on its Tencel brand from its own trade show stand, and will be represented on the conference stage.
