GoGreen NYC's The Future of Fashion session will explore what's happening on the frontiers of a global movement to design, source, and manufacture responsible apparel.
FIT President, Dr. Joyce Brown, will be the afternoon's keynote, and Assistant Dean of the School of Art and Design, Sass Brown will discuss where eco fashion is headed alongside a group of leaders working in the industry.
Over the past century, the global apparel industry has constructed a web of social and environmental impacts that extend to the far corners of the planet. As supply chains grow increasingly complex and intertwined, even seasoned experts experience trouble building transparency and sustainability principles into the vast layers of technology, geographies and materials. Join us for this industry spotlight on the future of fashion to learn the strategies New York City's leading edge designers and producers are putting into action in order to build a more responsible supply chain across the entire apparel life cycle — design and innovation, value chain, manufacturing and end-of-life.
