On 13 April 2022, Closed Loop Fashion Founder, Marina Chahboune, moderated an insightful talk show to kick-off the major annual event, Road to Fashion Revolution Indonesia 2022. The talk show brought a particular focus on upcycling fashion and shared inside knowledge from three Indonesian changemakers, each with their own unique experiences in upcycling.
On 13 and 14 April 2022, Indonesia once again joined the global Fashion Revolution movement with the “Road to Fashion Revolution Indonesia” event, initiated by Closed Loop Fashion and Asia Pacific Rayon for the second year running. The successful two-day event saw immersive workshops, insightful talk shows, a bazaar and 16 Indonesian labels showcasing their take on ethical and sustainable fashion.
Lingerie is amongst the more complex product segments to be found in the fashion industry. Especially bras are considered to be one of the most complicated garments to make and can easily consist of more than 30 different parts. This also makes lingerie a challenging product segment when it comes to sustainability: redesigning lingerie with circularity in mind is a complex task.
Designing for circularity is still a relatively new design approach, but fashion design students of Indonesia’s Maranatha University have braved the challenge and surprised our ‘Design out waste’-competition jury with incredibly creative lingerie and bodywear designs made from pre-consumer waste.
Join us for a virtual panel discussion on the topic of disrupted textile supply chains and the state of circular fashion after Covid-19. We will discuss this pivotal time in history as well as the opportunities that have surfaced within the chaos.
Can sustainable fashion be the new norm after the pandemic? Cinta Azwiendasari, a Behaviour Change Design and Communications Specialist has taken a little deep dive for us to research on changing consumption patterns in times of Covid-19 in her home country Indonesia.
