BeCo::Be Cool Be Conscious, the newly created platform for fashion sustainability in Spain was launched at the end of January at The Brandery Barcelona. The full day of practical workshops and interactive presentations gathered an excited and proactive crowd of practitioners, journalists and students. Speakers came from brands such as TE members Skunkfunk and Hoss Intropia, but also smaller sustainable brands and social entrepreneurs inspired the audience. TE is a proud co-convener and supporter of BeCo.
Join us in Barcelona, January 27 through January 29, at the first BeCo event, created to disseminate sustainability ideas in the fashion world as part of The Brandery, the urban fashion fair in Barcelona.
Textile Exchange together with Fabrics for Freedom is supporting this initiative; and is involved in the BeCoTALKS which will take place at The Laundry on Saturday January 28. The BeCoTALKS are a series of short talks and panel discussions to connect and create exchange between professionals about sustainability. In just 20 minutes, experts as well as business practitioners will share their global view and future perspective of a more sustainable fashion world.
