Sofie, Sophie & Lisa in Berlin for Ethical Fashion Show
FWF’s Sofie Schop (business development manager), Sophie Koers (marketing & communications manager) and Lisa Hardon (marketing & communications officer) have just returned from a trip to Berlin Fashion Week. With a booth at Ethical Fashion Show and visits to other trade fairs such as Bread & Butter, it was a successful and inspiring event.
While FWF was present at EFS during previous editions, this year we exhibited with our own booth. Here we met with many of our current member brands, sustainability or fashion organisations and other interested people who want to improve working conditions in their supply chains. Many of them included smaller or start up fashion labels and we were happy to inform them about our new FWF initiative, the Young Designer programme (more about this programme on our website soon).
On Friday we visited the Bread & Butter trade fair, one of the biggest fashion fairs in Europe. We noticed that also on this fair an increasing number of responsible brands exhibited - something we consider a positive development.
Many thanks to the Ethical Fashion Show for a well-organised event and to all the people we’ve met. We are looking forward to seeing each other again next year!
