Fashion webtool 'Close the loop' will be launched Overview Next


In a circular fashion industry, designers, manufacturers, retailers and consumers are challenged to consider the full life cycle of a garment. Plan C and Flanders Fashion Institute developed a free online tool to guide fashion entrepreneurs to guide through the basics of sustainable fashion business. With Close the Loop the organizations wish to encourage the industry to move from a linear system (take-make-waste) to a circular variant. Besides a general introduction of the in's and out's of the circular economy, hands-on tips and tricks and inspiring cases are listed. During Fashion Talks on 3th December Close the Loop was presented in premiere.
