This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Every year we throw away 30 kg of clothes, and the textile industry is one of the world’s top 5 polluters. So, how can we make the fashion industry more sustainable? It’s easy, claims social scientist and Creative Director Fredrik Wikholm, we just need ethics, environment and economics to be buddies. With his new innovation “The Rag Bag” Fredrik challenges the business to take action now, before it’s too late. It was the creative mindset and will to change, rather than skills in textile design that brought Fredrik Wikholm and his snowboard collective to start up a fashion brand that focused on sustainability. Now he’s taking recycling to the next level with an open-source innovation institute to pave ways for the fashion industry to make more sustainable choices. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.

Artificial Intelligence, is here to stay and is affecting all the major industries This tutorial walks you thru 13 areas where artificial intelligence is and could affect retail, beauty, clothing and fashion industry. 1. Supply Chain & Demand Projection: H&M announced that they were sitting on $4.3B of inventory, that is a lot of money that is sitting and being wasted. AI Solution: Using AI, it can use prediction analysis that which type of clothes, might not sell and create a combination of discounts, free shipping, product combo’s etc. to clear out the inventory that is most likely not to sell after a certain time period. Rue La La collaborated with MIT to experiment with AI technologies to improve demand forecasting. They developed a system that helped them predict the demand for products in their flash sales and accounted for data sources including brand information, product type, color, price and a range of other factors. This enabled them to optimize prices and generate a 10 percent increase in revenue without the extra burden of unused inventory or supplier costs.4 German e-commerce player Otto uses deep learning to analyze billions of transactions and is 90 percent accurate in forecasting what it will sell in the next 30 days. This insight allows it to order a couple of hundred thousand items each month from vendors with no human intervention. It has also cut surplus stock by 20 percent and reduced costly returns by 2 million items each year. 2. Photos for a new collection When you create new clothing line or launch a new collection, you have to take photos of all items to be posted on your website. It can be extremely cost sensitive because it involves models, photographers, makeup artists etc and you have ot manage their schedules and re-shoots can be a pain in the ass. There are AI companies that are enabling retailers to shoot images by putting clothes on mannequins and then replacing the mannequin with the 3D Image of the actual model. They did 3.GAP: Sorting Orders at Warehouse When you order a product on GAP or Amazon or any other online retailer, there are actual people on the other side picking and sorting products for you. It is a huge cost for because retailers have to pay them, it takes a longer time to sort products and most warehouses can’t function 24/7. AI Solution: GAP is testing and working with Kindered AI to train robots to pick and sort its products. * Imagine: Robots pick items of different sizes, puts them together in a nice box and drone brings it to your door. 4. Inventory Checks and Re-stocking Problem: today human beings go visit the racks and check if items need to be restocked. AI Solution: Camera’s and sensors can automagically sense what is missing and needs to be restocked and can pre-order it for you. And they can pair the understanding of the seasons, sales data etc to make sure they only order the item that is more likely to sell. And instead of getting new items manufactured, they can check if that item or similar item exists at other locations but its probability of selling at that location is low it, it can order it from there or ship it to the customer from there. 5. AI Designing Clothes Amazon is developing AI that combines hundreds of thousands of designs, fabrics etc to create something new that it interprets that could sell. Myntra’s brand Moda Rapido is powered by AI and works without human intervention to offer computer-generated designs, including T-shirts, jeans, kurtas, and shoes. The system is fed data from various sources, including customer data, social media, fashion publications etc., and creates thousands of combinations of designs, then hones in on what would sell well. It now has the highest gross margins compared to all other 14 brands under the Myntra portfolio. 6. Trend Forecasting Trend forecasting is big business. There are companies such as WGSN does that. They have employees that go thru thousands of images, look for patterns, new trends and sort them out to do trend forecast. AI: Analyzing which images, colors, style of photos that didn’t exist before but are getting high engagement. Combine that with data from hashtags, location, influencer, color distribution etc. AI can help analyze & predict upcoming trends.

Textiles are among the most ancient human design pieces. In this short film, New York-based fashion collective threeASFOUR, together with collaborators Travis Fitch and Stratsys, reimagine fabric manipulation and textile design using 3D printing to create dresses that transform based on the ergonomics and movement of the human body. FASHION AS DESIGN is a new course by MoMA that explores a selection of garments from around the world—ranging from Kente cloth to jeans to 3D-printed dresses. Each week will begin with a conversation between the course instructors—Paola Antonelli, Michelle Fisher, and Stephanie Kramer—that introduces the themes, items, and questions that we will explore.

Ellen MacArthur and Stella McCartney co-launched the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s latest report A new textiles economy: Redesigning fashion's future on November 28, 2017. The report, created by the Circular Fibres Initiative which launched in May this year, calls for the fashion industry to adopt this new vision and create cross industry collaborations to achieve it. Clothes are an everyday necessity, and for many an important expression of individuality. Yet the industry’s current take-make-dispose model is the root cause of many environmental impacts and substantial economic value loss. Every second, the equivalent of one garbage truck of textiles is landfilled or burned. An estimated USD 500 billion value is lost every year due to clothing that’s barely worn and rarely recycled. If nothing changes, by 2050 the fashion industry will use up a quarter of the world’s carbon budget. As well as being wasteful, the industry is polluting: clothes release half a million tonnes of microfibres into the ocean every year, equivalent to more than 50 billion plastic bottles. Microfibres are likely impossible to clean up and can enter food chains. Find out more about the initiative's ongoing work here: tiny.cc/fibres.

Almost every piece of clothing you own was made, in some part, by a person. Clothing manufacturing still lags years behind industries like cars and electronics in automation of labor, but new technologies like lasers and 3D knitting could radically transform how garment factories operate around the world, finally bringing the fashion industry to the tech future. Quartz fashion reporter Marc Bain explores how the notoriously low-tech apparel industry is now on the cusp of a new era of customizable, mass-produced fashion. -- Quartz is a digital news outlet dedicated to telling stories at the intersection of the important and the interesting.

Metallic fabrics are into spotlight: Ties, bow ties and handkerchief made of high-tech golden and they are soft, light and water-repellents. A new process in textile treatment gives a unique appearance to the fabric making it attractive. Subscribe to wocomoDOCS: https://goo.gl/sBmGkp Follow wocomo on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wocomo The project’s goal was initially a thread of silver, but true luxury knows only one colour: gold. Material factory Jakob Schlaepfer in collaboration with Empa, the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, have developed a vacuum coating system to produce a yarn with a layer of pure 24-carat gold. Woven fabrics sparkle with the characteristic colour of this precious metal. This is the beginning of a production process that is the first in the world to produce a permanently coated gold fabric. During the process, a piece of gold is bombarded with argon ions so that the gold atoms move away and adhere to a polyester thread; even if the yarn is wound, twisted, processed in weaving machines the precious metal remains sticky.

Park Ji-won has this week′s Industry Insight. You can′t talk about Korea′s fashion industry without mentioning the Dongdaemun fashion market. Dongdaemun Fashion Town is the largest clothing market in Korea,... and about one-third of all Korea′s clothing distributors are based near the region. From textiles and clothing subsidiary materials... to sewing factories and wholesale and retail shops,... if it has to do with clothing and fashion, you′ll find it here. A designer′s idea can be made into a final product... in just a day. Let′s take a look. This is Dongdaemun Fashion Town, the location of more than 30 fashion malls and tens of thousands of small clothing shops. "It′s really amazing all the district, and all the fashion is really nice." "I sometimes see items with unique designs that I cannot find at brand name or department stores." Retail shops are open from midnight or 2 a.m. and wholesale shops open from 8 p.m. to the next morning, meaning the market operates 24 hours-a-day. What′s peculiar to the district is that it′s like a complete fashion ecosystem, where everything about fashion is clustered together. Thousands of fabric and clothing subsidiary shops, and more than 20-thousand small sewing factories are all nearby. Designers can turn their ideas into clothes in just a day by making a sample, and once the design is confirmed, mass production can start after another day or two. With Dongdaemun′s fast yet sophisticated designs gaining global recognition, many orders now come from abroad. "Now we get many orders for samples from China, as Chinese buyers visit Dongdaemun often." The Dongdaemun district makes more money from exports than domestic sales, especially in the wholesale market. "Roughly 60 percent of the town′s annual revenue comes from exports. International buyers are mostly from China, Taiwan and Japan." The fashion town also serves as a testbed for many up-and-coming designers. "This is a hip fashion mecca where you can make and sell clothes. The region helps with my market research and market sourcing." Some designers have successfully grown from single shops into fashion empires. This modern brand began from a shop in Dongdaemun,... but has expanded to include dozens of shops in China. "Codes Combine started as a shop in Dongdaemun in 2002. Now we have many products in many categories, particularly menswear, underwear and a kids′ clothing line." Fashion Group Hyungji,... which has the number-one market share in women′s clothes as a domestic company,.. also started as a humble shop in Dongdaemun market in the early 1980s. "The founder of the group still emphasizes the so-called Dongdaemun spirit,... which is characterized by designs that ar

Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe A building collapsed killing more than 1,000 garment workers in Bangladesh last month. The disaster showed the terrible working conditions, and lack of safety, for millions of workers there. Both Bangladesh and the global community are coming to terms with their roles in the disaster, because whether consumers shop at Walmart or at Giorgio Armani, the clothes they buy are probably produced in Bangladesh, which is ranks number two in the world for garment production. And that is because garment workers in Bangladesh are the lowest earners in the world. Workers expect to earn 24 cents an hour, with some wages as low as $38 a month - a lot lower than the rate in the world's other big apparel producing markets. So, can Bangladesh make a change to a properly regulated garments industry? And what would this change mean for the industry? We discuss the options on Counting the Cost.

"What we are appealing from our government is to tell them to ban those clothes from entering our country. We don't need them because they are making our economy very bad, 'cos like now I am losing business because of those clothes. So, what I can tell the government is if they are bringing them they should give them for free and they should put a mark for our people to understand and to have the note of knowing from outside when they bring them here, when importing they are going to take them to the poor people, to the people who have no clothes at a free price not selling them, giving them for free, as a donation." 9.

Various establishing shots of Ann McCreath, founder and head designer at Kiko Romeo. 15. SOUNDBITE: (English) Ann McCreath, founder and head designer at Kiko Romeo: "For me I think within the African scene one of the biggest challenges as a fashion designer is that we are lacking high enough quality fabric to make great end products to export globally and so, we often find ourselves importing West African textiles which are of much higher quality in terms of cotton prints at a very high duty rate and that's makes our pricing uncompetitive and I would happily buy a suitable, local alternative but I can not find the quality I want." 16. Various shots of Ann McCreath, founder and head designer at Kiko Romeo. 17. Various shots Kiko Romeo designers working on their design wares LEAD IN: The second hand clothing business in Kenya is thriving - but at what cost? Some designers say the cast offs from richer nations are damaging local trade. STORYLINE: The second hand clothing business, which found its way into Africa in the late seventies and early eighties, is still booming in Kenya today. 'Mitumba' is the term used to refer to second-hand clothes. When translated into English it means onslaught. Many foreigners become bewildered when they see traders place hundreds of garments anywhere from on the ground to little windowless shops or cardboard makeshift tables in the hope of making quick money from selling cheaply acquired garb. Buyers blame the quality of local textiles and fabric.
