Sustainable fashion is a movement of creating change to fashion products and the fashion industry towards greater ecological integrity and social justice. It concerns more than addressing fashion textiles or products. It comprises addressing the whole system of fashion – from producers to consumers.
Welcome to Sustainable Fashion Days – an initiative to increase knowledge, share experience and build bridges.
Get inspired on these two digital SwedTalks about Sustainable Fashion . You will meet leading representatives from the fashion industry, both from Sweden and from Hong Kong. These seminars are produced by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce and the Consulate General of Sweden in Hong Kong. All in collaboration with HK Design Centre and The Mills.
These SwedTALKs are a way to build a bridge between Sweden and Hong Kong.
We do read about lots of initiatives from the fashion industry on new creative materials/fabrics. But the question is – how far has we come? What can we expect?Where do we fail?
Listen to our high quality panel talking about the future of innovative materials. Great examples will be highlighted and inspiration about the materials of tomorrow will be given.
We all have our own definition on what sustainability really is. What is sustainable for me might not be it for you and the other way around. Welcome to this SwedTALK with several leading profiles from Sweden and Hong Kong says about this.
Let us lift the perspective and see how we mutually can make this world a better place.

Clothes affect all of us on this planet. We are all, to some extent, consumers regardless of the climate we live in and whether we follow the latest fashion, wear hand-me-downs, shop at large chains or buy tailor-made.
At the same time, fashion and textile represents one of the most polluting trade industries. Swedish businesses and research centres are among the main drivers for investment in more sustainable systems.
Fashion revolution – the future of textiles is an exhibition that highlights the industry’s major challenges, showcases Swedish solutions and guides you as a consumer to contribute effectively. The material is produced by the Swedish Institute with the help of researchers and other sustainable fashion experts.
Physical events in Hong Kong are in the pipeline. Discussions are held with H&M, Redress and WWF. Stay tuned…
