Pure Origin to conduct programme on sustainable fashion

by admin on February 10, 2018

Pure Origin, the new sourcing and manufacturing show to be held with fashion event Pure London, to be held from February 11 to 13, 2018, in UK, has announced that leading organisations WGSN, Coloro, ASBCI, Sedex, Textile Forum, and IHKIB, will deliver a programme of education and insights into the future of fashion about product sourcing and sustainability.

Julie Driscoll, managing director of Pure London said, “A host of seminars discussing manufacturing in the UK, ethical fashion, the circular economy, how to source sustainably and build sustainable and efficient supply chains, trend forecasting for sustainability, and how the fashion industry can change the way it uses and re-uses textiles and clothing, puts the spotlight firmly on achieving a sustainable and ethical future for fashion.”

Jonathan Ivelaw-Chapman, CEO at non-profit organisation Sedex Global, will be discussing transparency in the supply chain on a global scale on February 12, 2018. He said, “The advent of technology is now challenging the way in which we see the fashion and garment industry mobilise. The use of automation, and the demands of consumers to move to a more agile demand, means that different ways of manufacturing and sourcing are already being seen to impact. Anticipating the demand for investment and working out where the gaps in your supply chain are likely to appear during the next decade will be the biggest challenges affecting the fashion and retail industry.”

Widely regarded in the fashion industry, The Association of Suppliers to the British Clothing Industry (ASBCI) draws on the knowledge and connections of its members to offer support across many aspects of the clothing industry and supply chain.

Chairman Alistair Knox will join a panel discussion on February 13, 2018, exploring the pros and cons of UK manufacturing and re-evaluating the proposition of reshoring manufacturing. He said, “As a trade association with particular strengths in management and technical aspects of the clothing supply chain, the ASBCI has a strategy of sharing knowledge and best practice for the benefit of the UK fashion industry.”

Each day at the show, head of leading colour system business, Coloro, Ann-Kristin Kassler and Colour consultant Joanne Thomas, both from Coloro, will demonstrate how to win with colour.

Pure Origin is the gateway for international manufacturers to break into the UK market, meet with thousands of visitors from the fashion retail ecosystem and be a part of a market whose growth rate is leading across Europe.

Across the three days, Pure Origin will offer over 20 seminars. The event will offer a unique opportunity for connected and efficient business by facilitating easy access to global suppliers and fuelling networking and trade. Over 60 manufacturers from around the world will be exhibiting, including Handloom Export Promotion Council members from India, IMPROMUNDI from MOROCCO, Confenix, LaGofra and Ribeiro & Matos from Portugal.
