See fashion in a new way
This event is sold out, but drop-ins are welcome!
Only around 1% of all clothes manufactured today are recycled, but the dress in the picture is one of the few exceptions. It was made from clothes that with a chemical and mechanical process were broken down and woven into new fabric. The launch of H&M Concious Exclusive 2020 was a milestone for the KTH-based company Renewcell.
See the blue dress and other garments that change the way we manufacture, recycle and buy clothes and make-up, and listen to a conversation about the future of the fashion industry.
