Fashion for Good is expanding to South Asia with the launch of a dedicated regional innovation program.
This global initiative is already active in Asia, having partnered with Hong Kong-based tech incubator Mills Fabrica and is continuously expanding its activities with manufacturers such as textile manufacturer Arvind.
Selected innovators will have the opportunity to showcase their solutions as part of Fashion for Good’s Innovation Day to be held at the Sri Lanka Fashion Week on November 24, 2019. These innovators will also gain priority access to the Fashion for Good program, which enables access to a network of global partners such as founding partner C&A Foundation, and corporate partners C&A, Adidas, Kering and PVH Corp. to name a few, as well as to funding, mentoring and bespoke coaching, providing innovators with the tools needed to grow.
Fashion for Good is actively working on scaling innovations in the region and by catalysing collaborative pilots, which address areas such as making organic cotton traceable and solutions for the treatment of waste water from the apparel manufacturing process. A physical and local presence facilitates a deeper focus on innovators and allows for swifter implementation of pilot programs with partner brands and manufacturers, including targeted connections to corporate partners and investor ecosystems.
