We will kick off the event with a welcome note from Uwe Kerkmann, Head of Wirtschaftsförderung Düsseldorf and member of Fashion Net Düsseldorf who will talk about the importance of the fashion industry in the city and the challenges and opportunities the industry is facing today. We will then introduce the Fashion Revolution movement and explain ways how you too can contribute.

A Düsseldorf based startup, The Cano Shoe, will present its sustainable shoe collection and introduce its newly launched technological solution to increase transparency in the supply chains of shoe and garment manufacturing. We will then have Andreas Tepest from a renowned Essen based family firm Deichmann report on an industry initiative called CADS - cooperation for assuring defined standards for shoe and leather goods production e.V.

The evening will end with a presentation from Prof. Dr.Marina Elena Wachs on “The Future of Sustainable Materials – Hypes and Trends” and a panel discussion on how we as consumers can make better informed purchasing choices.
