Dumbo Feather are proud to be supporting the annual Australian Circular Fashion Conference, Australasia’s leading business event on sustainability in the fashion industry. Following the success of the event in 2018—ACFC 2019 is calling the industry to implement fashion sustainability within 5-10 years. The conference will attract over 500 business leaders from some of the largest multinational companies in Australian and New Zealand.
The motivation to establish the ACFC was in response to the mounting evidence on the environmental impacts from the fashion industry globally. At every stage within the supply chain there is avoidable waste and pollution. The challenges are complex and we need to take action now.
The conference features a breath-taking array of esteemed global speakers including:
Professor Becky Early (MISTRA Future Fashion and London Chelsea College of Art)
Megan Meiklejohn (Eileen Fisher, New York)
Elin Larsson (Filippa K, Stockholm)
Giusy Bettoni (CLASS, Milan)
Ollie Milliner and Manu Rastogi (Kathmandu, New Zealand)
Fanny Moizant (Vestiaire Collective, Hong Kong)
and Christian Dreszig (Bluesign, Gallan)
There will also be leaders from large multinational companies including United Nations Global Compact, Lenzing, Workwear Group, Wesfarmers, Cotton On, Spell & The Gypsy Collective, Arch & Hook, Sustainable Apparel Coalition, Bluesign, Cotton Australia, Salvos, Textile Exchange and Forum for the Future, as well as leading expert consultants in the field of circular and sustainable practice for the retail industry in attendance.
Following the one day conference, tickets holders will be invited to attend an exclusive workshop day run by our international speakers. Limited to 50 participants, those attending will join with these professionals to encourage brainstorming around “circular fashion” which utilises innovative recycling practices to reduce residual waste.
