The Sustainable Fashion Research Agenda

  • Carlsberg Academy Copenhagen (map)

The aim of the Sustainable Fashion Research Agenda (SFRA) event is to take stock of the current state of affairs regarding sustainable fashion. In the last decade, numerous fashion brands, industry associations, and private consultancies have celebrated the concept of sustainable fashion. However, there is often an absence of concrete information about the actual progress towards sustainability. SFRA hopes to remedy this neglect by facilitating a research-based discussion on the current scale and scope of sustainable fashion initiatives.

 SFRA will focus on research-based presentations and active workshops focusing on what we actually know today about sustainable fashion, and particularly how SMEs can work strategically with sustainable fibers, circularity, or sustainable consumption. The event will thus provide holistic and knowledge-based inspiration about sustainable fashion that moves beyond the often limited and silo-like practices and logics of industry.

 The audience for SFRA is researchers, designers, brands, associations, NGOs, journalists and other reflective scholars/practitioners with a interest in sustainable fashion.

 The SFRA event is a collaboration between CBS and Design School Kolding. It is kindly supported by the Carlsberg Foundation and the Research Council of Norway as part of the project Future Ways of Working (275347) in the digital economy.
