If the COVID pandemic has highlighted the need for the textiles and fashion industry to clean up its act, one of the most important post-pandemic trends that is emerging involves the area of resale, recycling, and upcycling of textiles and apparel. How can garments, décor, and other textile-based materials be reused in a way that diverts discarded items from landfills? What are the technologies enabling the extension of textile lifespans?
On July 28 at 1 pm EST, join WhatTheyThink Senior Editor Cary Sherburne, CEO of Texintel and WhatTheyThink contributor Debbie McKeegan, and Design Pool founder Kristen Dettoni as they explore how the move toward resale, recycling, and upcycling is poised to bring significant change to the industry and will further drive adoption of a wide range of digital technologies as the concept of fast fashion fades.
What you’ll learn:
• The current state of the textile and apparel industry
• How the COVID-19 crisis transformed the industry, and what the post-COVID landscape looks like.
• How digital textile production can help the industry not only cope but thrive in the wake of these new trends.
