Sustainability - Old solutions surpass the “new”!

Clare Press, Sustainable fashion communicator, presenter of the Wardrobe Crisis podcast, writes on LinkedIn that in sustainable fashion circles – especially on here where it’s more brand/ startup/ conference focused – we so often talk about the new tech solutions, the apps, and the hot new materials and inventions that are supposedly going to supercharge the circular fashion economy.

But I put it to you that a lot of the solutions are actually the old ones – buy less, make it better quality and repair it often. Not sexy enough? Maybe this colourful interview with my local cobbler can help with that!

We bring leather, material and fashion businesses together: an opportunity to meet and greet face to face. We bring them from all parts of the world so that they can find fresh partners, discover new customers or suppliers and keep ahead of industry developments.


We organise a number of trade exhibitions which focus on fashion and lifestyle: sectors that are constantly in flux, so visitors and exhibitors alike need to be constantly aware both of the changes around them and those forecast for coming seasons.
