Sustainable Fashion Challenge

By KTH Innovation #itallstartshere

Sustainable Fashion Day

What does fashion have to do with technology? Only everything! On April 6, 2022, KTH Innovation organized a full day of fashion focusing on innovation and sustainability.

Guests saw new technology that pushes the fashion industry in a more sustainable direction, met startups and were inspired to contribute to a planet-positive fashion industry. They could try 3D-printed lipsticks, see beautiful clothes made from recycled materials or waste products, and get a sneak peak of the latest research from KTH. 

Sustainable Fashion Day was organized by KTH Innovation. We support students, researchers and employees at KTH to develop their ideas or to create impact with their research. Visit us here!

Sustainable Fashion Day will return in 2023.
