The fashion industry lives on the driving force of Entrepreneurship. Trends change, seasons pass, and the next best thing in fashion is always waiting around the corner. Entrepreneurs in Fashion: Building A Brand Through Sustainability . November 30th at EFactor’s HQ. RSVP HERE.
As a result of the quickening pace and fast moving consumer demands - the fashion industry also stands for Challenge with a capital C. Take the environmental issue alone… did you know that this industry uses more water than any other bar agriculture? At least 8,000 chemicals are used to turn raw materials into textiles and 25% of the world’s pesticides are used to grow non-organic cotton (Earth Pledge).
We are proud to have San Francisco’s University’s Connie Ulasewicz as our guest speaker at the next EFactor event. Connie will share her thoughts on how to build your fashion line that is sustainable for the environment and community. She will be joined by local designers and advocates in a discussion that will show how you can build a brand and use it as a tool to project their ideals of sustainability to the world.
Professor Ulasewicz is a leader in the sustainable fashion movement and an international consultant on project development and social entrepreneurship. Her design and merchandising students participate in projects that serve the community and promote a responsible and sustainable fashion industry.
