in Italy

inspirational trip



EVENT's Aims & Benefits

Join us for a unique opportunity to look behind-the-scenes into companies and organisations that are at the forefront of making products for a circular fashion industry.

During a two-day tour in the famed Prato-Florence region, you will visit established and pioneering companies that are marrying Italian craftmanship with circular design principles.

Throughout the two days, you will hear from company leaders, designers and production managers willing to share their story, vision, and insights into their ways of working. You will find out about the worlds of traceability, recycled wool, leather, and other fabrics, as well as the different approaches to collaboration and logistics.

The tour has been put together for professionals in the fashion industry. It promises to be interesting to designers, buyers, production managers, sustainability managers but all fashion professionals with an interest in sustainable fashion are invited to join too. In the evenings, through facilitated workshops, you will have the possibility to meet and exchange with counterparts from the fashion industry.

Rather than doing a theoretical course, these two days will give you invaluable insights into the limitations and opportunities of integrating circular processes into your fashion products and production chains. Min 10 / Max 20 participants.
