19.06    Webinar: “The switch to circular fashion & textiles” with TOP-atelier as case.

On Friday June 19th 2020 TOP-atelier and AMS (Antwerp Management School) organized a webinar in which we focus on the need for the transition to a circular fashion and textile industry.

We took TOP-atelier as a case, looked back at the origins of this research and shared first experiences and lessons learned. In addition, the five designers of Tropas, La Gadoue, Studio AMA, Triptiek and Paule Josephe presented their high-quality products.

TOP-atelier is an initiative of IVOC, Creamoda, Doek vzw, Ecoso and Prospex Institute, with the support of Vlaanderen Circulair.
