The most ethical and sustainable fashion at BEFF 2018

The Barcelona Ethical Fashion Fest will present the most sustainable vision of the fashion industry at the Disseny Hub Barcelona for the second time this November 23. This is the fifth edition of the event that proposes activities aimed at discovering ethical solutions to current design, production and distribution practices in the fashion industry. 

The organizers are made up of citizens, designers, providers, shopkeepers, distributors, journalists and other professionals related to the fashion world and that make up the grup Moda Sostenible Barcelona. Today, the fashion industry is one of the biggest contaminators in the world, mainly due to materials and production methods. With the announcement of this event, they hope to disseminate the need for an industry that does not contaminate, is respectful to the environment, sustainable and promotes human rights, as well as raising awareness in society about the advantage of sustainable fashion and promoting its consumption and production. 

To learn more about the topic, the BEFF has organized two round tables (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) with experts in sustainability and fashion professionals, as well as the screening of a documentary. It will also be a great opportunity to make contact with other industry professionals in the networking spaces.

Through out the day, visitors have acces to the showroom collective with a variety of sustainable brands, as well as a space for fashion bloggers. During BEFF, there will also be an exhibition of work by design students and emerging designers and the exhibit "Muestra de Moda Mexicana".

You can view the entire program here.

If you are a blogger or fashion influencer and you would like to take part and learn more about the latest in sustainable fashion at the festival, send an email to comunicacio@modasosteniblebcn.org.
