Organization's description

Fashion for Good is the global initiative that’s here to make all fashion good. By sparking and scaling innovation, by offering practical action in the form of support, funding and roadmaps, and by fostering sector-wide collaboration rather than competition, we enable the daring invention and widespread adoption of good fashion practice. With an Innovation Hub in Amsterdam that supports a global network of change makers, we are reimagining how fashion is designed, made, worn and reused for the good of people and the planet. Fashion for Good consists of six complementary initiatives, each of which works to enable a circular fashion industry: An early-stage and a late-stage programme to identify and scale circular technologies and business models, an acceleration fund, a ‘how-to guide’ for more sustainable fashion, a co-working space with likeminded organisations, and the Fashion for Good Museum in Amsterdam. The Fashion for Good Museum is an interactive fashion museum for the future of fashion, where we tell the stories behind the clothes you wear and how your choices can have a positive impact on people and our planet.

Knowing Cotton Otherwise

Cotton is perhaps the world's most well-known fabric, however, many stories behind cotton are less known. These untold and sometimes unexpected perspectives have been collected and brought together in the exhibition, Knowing Cotton Otherwise. Centred on collectivity and community, local artists have been invited to present work that connects and intersects with different themes relating to the story of cotton. By mixing styles and stories, Knowing Cotton Otherwise creates a multifaceted experience, inviting you to reflect, question, play and wonder.

Film Screening Going Circular @ Fashion for Good museum

21st of July 2022 at 19:00:00

The new documentary ‘Going Circular’ unlocks the secrets to an innovative concept called circularity -- an economic system that eliminates waste and saves the planet’s resources. The film tells the story of four visionaries from around the world - 102-year-old inventor Dr. James Lovelock, biomimicry biologist Janine Benyus, designer Arthur Huang, and financier John Fullerton - whose extraordinary experiences changed the way they think about humanity’s future. Each of their stories leads them to a fundamental reassessment of what our food, our cities, our financial system, even our fashion industry could look like if we create, produce, and distribute within Earth's natural boundaries.
