CSDMM-UPM – Moda Sostenible Fashion Forever
19 October, 2023 24 November, 2023
The Centro Superior de Diseño de Moda de Madrid of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (CSDMM-UPM) is organising the exhibition project ‘Fashion Forever. A more future friendly fashion and textile industry in the making’ together with the Swedish Embassy, in collaboration with the Swedish Institute, H&M Spain and IKEA, to delve into the great challenges of the future of sustainable fashion.
In recent years, sustainability has been gaining ground in the textile sector. The industry is becoming increasingly aware of the need to go green, modifying its mechanisms and tools to meet the demands of more committed consumers who are not only looking to buy fashion, but also want it to be sustainable and leave a positive footprint.
The emerging responsible fashion industry in Sweden offers its broad vision that seeks the involvement of politics, educational institutions and industry and this is precisely what is reflected within the project ‘Fashion Forever. A more future friendly fashion and textile industry in the making’.
