December 2018

We are water. The Fashionsustain conference on 16 January 2019 will focus on a highly topical complex of themes ranging from microplastics to water stewardship. With this in mind, the international conference has now firmed up its line-up of top class speakers from innovative companies and leading organisations including Blue Ben, BMU, Circular Systems, CSI Ltd., Global Fashion Exchange, Good Society, Greenpeace, Langbrett, Pure Denim, Remei AG, Stop! Micro Waste, Sustainable Apparel Coalition, Swedish Stockings, Sympatex, Tchibo, We Are SpinDye and WWF. The speakers will present visionary approaches that help conserve vital water resources. Clare Press, Sustainability Editor-at-Large of Vogue Australia, will open the conference with her keynote speech titled “We Are Water, Inspiration & Respiration“.

At the upcoming Thinkathon, the think-tank of the future, the three challenge hosts Otto Group, Bikini Berlin and the EU project Textile and Clothing Business Labs will meanwhile focus on the highly topical subjects of the circular economy, new relationships between consumers and the retail trade and industry 4.0. The Thinkathon is one of the “thinking marathons” organised by Messe Frankfurt in the framework of Neonyt. Here for the third time behind the scenes at Neonyt, multidisciplinary teams will join forces to come up with prototype solutions for the set challenges within 48 hours. They will present their results to the challenge hosts behind closed doors on the final workshop day and to the public at the Fashionsustain conference on 16 January 2019.

Neonyt, the global hub for fashion, sustainability and innovation (15 – 17 January 2019) comprises the Neonyt Trade Fair, the conferences Fashionsustain by Messe Frankfurt and #Fashiontech by Premium Group as well as the design-thinking format Thinkathon, the Neonyt Fashion Show, showcases, the influencer and blogger event Prepeek, networking events and, last but not least, the Neonyt Party. The hub replaces the previous trade show duo Ethical Fashion Show Berlin and Greenshowroom.
