A solution for a sustainable fashion industry | Fredrik Wikholm | TEDxGöteborg
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.

It looks at how companies in the UK are working to meet government targets to reduce their environmental impact by using state of the art water recycling plants and by making better use of their waste streams. The resource then explores the environmental impact of textile production in Bangladesh, and shows how the true cost of cheap textiles is being felt by the very poorest living downstream from polluting textile factories.

How fast fashion adds to the world's clothing waste problem (Marketplace)
Fast fashion is a major contributor to the world's clothing waste problem.

A new textiles economy: Redesigning fashion's future
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.
Counting the Cost - Bangladesh: The cost of fashion
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. At Al Jazeera English, we focus on people and events that affect people's lives.

What is the clothing of the future: SMART wearables & e-textiles
The idea of creating smart clothing was first prompted by the science fiction but even experts didn’t expect the e-textile revolution to start to fast and progress so rapidly. Nowadays smart clothing is used to encase wearable technology and provide the user with new, unseen before capabilities and functionality. There are many working prototypes and startups, which are aimed at redefining the fashion industry. Right now wearable technology has found its best use in the sport, fitness, wellness and medical industries (special monitors may be used for tracking all the vital body metrics) but creative solutions may influence the creation of casual clothing (there are already substances, which can make clothing repel water, dust and other pollutants). Smart clothing is definitely a thing of the future and this industry has everything it takes to become a mainstream technology. More about such technologies here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixN3Uf6ZrRo In this video presentation we have reviewed such futuristic clothing designs (fair use of footage, all credits are below and in the video): - Synapse dress, which lights up the dress, depending on the person’s moon: www.vimeo.com/106431614 - Smart fitness tracker, which can help monitor performance to reach better results: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zbtc-unamZs - A smart shoe, which can change its style: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-HAu9FEbss - An overview of a smart-shirt created for running: www.youtube.com/watch?v=zO80nmgCbZs - A scientific story about the technology of smart gloves, used for gesture-controlling technology: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ci-yB6EgVW4 - The special compound, which makes clothing waterproof and resistant to pollutants (hydrophobic clothing).

Cultural Fashion: Transform the Fashion Industry From Villain to Hero | Monica Boța-Moisin | TEDxTUM
What do the fashion designer Tom Ford, the singer Adele, the country of Romania and a lawyer have in common? The use of ethnic designs in the fashion industry raises issues of plagiarism and cultural misappropriation. Can big fashion houses simply copy traditional clothing designs, trademark these designs, and therefore legally protect the copied design? Monica challenges the cultural sustainability of this kind of behavior and proposes new ways for how the fashion industry can become the ambassador of traditional garments instead of the villain in this story. Monica Boța-Moisin is an unconventional lawyer. She is the promoter of a legislative initiative in Romania protecting the traditional Romanian blouse, Romanian designs and traditional cultural expressions. Monica has pioneered the terms ‘cultural intellectual property’ and ‘traditional identity design’ within Romanian academia. Currently in Berlin, Monica is focusing on textile management in fashion and fashion law, and inspired by her travels, writes a blog on textile stories and traditional designs aimed at generating cultural sustainability projects. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Textile innovations powered by Techtextil: Smart textiles ahead | Messe Frankfurt
Thimo Schwenzfeier, Director Marketing & Communications Textiles & Textile Technologies, Messe Frankfurt | Smart textiles – From Tech to Fashion Technologies that enter the fashion business today often originate from applications that have nothing to do with the latest apparel trends. Smart textiles are used in a variety of products, especially when lightweight textiles and electronic functions are combined, creating valuable precedents for how they can be used and applied in different contexts. Thimo Schwenzfeier, Marketing & Communications Director of Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt, heads an expert panel that will provide a full overview of what fashion can hope to learn from tech. Dipl.-Ing. Sabine Gimpel, Head of Marketing , Textile Research Institute Thüringen-Vogtland | How textiles get smart Although there are still only a limited number of smart textile products on the market, major companies from many industries are considering their use in a variety of applications. Google and Levis are developing interactive textiles, and the possibility of these materials’ breakthrough in the industry is becoming a reality. Sabine Gimpel, Head of Marketing at the Thüringen-Vogtland Textile Research Institute, leads this panel on how sensory, luminescent or interactive features, in combination with mobile devices and user-friendly apps, will accelerate the growth of the smart textiles market. Andreas Röpert, CEO, Interactive Wear | Smart Textiles – How to Enter the Market How has the smart textiles market evolved since the year 2000? And how will it evolve over the next decade? After a short introduction on the past and future of smart textiles, Andreas Röpert, CEO of Interactive Wear, will share wisdom gleaned during 12 years of product development and production, spread over more than 100 projects. This will be followed by a panel that analyzes different approaches to illustrating the opportunities and challenges of product designers, with a closer look at the development of electrically-heated products and illustrated examples from fashion and sports.

Fashion's Crippling Impact On The Environment Is Only Getting Worse (HBO)
The fashion week tents have been packed up and the models sent home until the next collection debuts, but one deeply entrenched industry trend shows no sign of stopping: Fast fashion, which has become one of the biggest sources of pollution in the world. According to a recent report, the textile industry emits more greenhouse gas emissions than international shipping and aviation combined. And the amount of waste the industry generates, as well as how much water and resources it uses, is increasing. Since 2000, global clothes production has more than doubled, and the average person now buys 60 percent more items of clothing every year and keeps them for about half as long as they did 15 years ago. In the USA, over 85 percent of those clothes end up in a landfill. China, which produces 50 percent of the world's textiles, and imports the largest amount of recycled clothing, has been dealing with pollution from the industry for decades: Most recycled clothing from around the world is up routed there and turned into recycled yarn. But starting this year, China will begin implementing a ban on the import of 24 solid materials, including textiles. Nate Herman, the Senior Vice President of Supply Chain for the American Apparel & Footwear Association told VICE News things are going to get much worse. “They have cut the source materials for recycled fabrics. It will have a very negative effect on our efforts to make the industry more sustainable,” he said. But recycling clothes currently is extremely difficult — much of our clothing is from blended fabrics or synthetic materials, meaning that it is often more time and resource intensive to recycle them than to just produce new clothes. Some experts, such as Ellen MacArthur whose foundation is leading the charge on creating a circular economy for textiles and who estimates that waste generated from textiles is worth $500 billion a year, believes that the fashion industry needs to go beyond just better recycling.

Industry Insight: Korea′s fashion hub Dongdaemun Fashion Town 

인더스트리 한국의 동대문 패션
Now we are going to take a look at the largest fashion hub in Korea, Seoul′s iconic Dongdaemun Fashion Town,... which is visited by millions of tourists and local shoppers every year. 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

Fashion Factories Undercover (Documentary) - Real Stories
Check out our new website for more incredible documentaries: HD and ad-free. https://goo.gl/LwMcmY Beyond the crumbling walls of sweatshops we find out the true cost of fashion. It’s April 23rd 2013, a busy commercial building in Dhaka, Bangladesh towers over thousands of workers, many of them children. As they toil away in a cramped sweatshop the force of the eight-storey building collapses on to them, killing more than a 1,000 people and permanently disfiguring a further 2,500. It emerges that this building had been condemned and not fit for purpose, yet many workers were caged for 14-hours a day with no escape.This was not just an unfortunate circumstance but one that could easily have been prevented. Through first-hand eyewitness accounts we will investigate the cause of the collapse and reveal how major international brands have ignored the warnings by continuing to use these unsafe buildings and put profit ahead of safety.

Clothing Will Save Us | Stacy Flynn | TEDxOlympia
It is undisputed that the textile and apparel industry is one of the most environmentally damaging industries on the planet and most people aren’t aware of exactly how their clothing contributes to water, air and soil damage around the world. Clothing is as important as the food we eat and the water we drink. The time is now to leverage the best of what we already do in the apparel industry and convert this massive issue in to one of the greatest opportunities of our century. Stacy is a textile and apparel specialist with a BS in Textile Development and Marketing from the Fashion Institute of Technology and an MBA in Sustainable Systems from Bainbridge Graduate Institute at Pinchot University. She is actively reinventing the textile and apparel business model to preserve the future of apparel. After a diverse background working with both start-ups and large multi-national corporations like DuPont, Target, Eddie Bauer, and Rethink Fabric, Stacy launched Future Resource Collective (FRC), a collaboration hub and incubator for sustainable innovations in the apparel and textile industry. In 2014, FRC launched its first social purpose corporation, Evrnu, which uses a patent-pending technology that recycles cotton garment waste to create premium, renewable fiber. Learn more about her work at www.evrnu.com. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Various establishing of Jane Munyau a Kenyan designer and exhibition officer. 8. SOUNDBITE: (English), Jane Munyau a Kenyan designer and exhibition officer. "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.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Peter, a second hand clothes wholesaler: "Kenyans do prefer these second hand clothes because their texture is sometimes better than the locally made (ones), because when you purchase these second hand clothes, they stay longer than the locally made (ones) as the locally made textures are poor or sometimes they are made in a way, simply made." AP Television Nairobi, Kenya, 14th October, 2010 13. Various shots Kiko Romeo designers working on their design wares. 14. 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.
