3 reasons why you shouldn’t miss the MODA-FAD Sustainable Challenge 2019

On November 29, we will host the 2019 MODA-FAD Sustainable Challenge 2019 at Disseny Hub Barcelona, ​​a creative workshop held within two days that will bring together 30 design students, 7 experts in fashion and sustainability, and 150 kg of recovered textile material. Activities, which include a creative marathon day as well as the exhibition and presentation of the projects, will be held during the RE/-Barcelona Sustainable Fashion Global Event on 29th and 30th November at Disseny Hub Barcelona. The marathon on the 29th is open to the public. Here are three reasons why you shouldn’t miss it:

1. New talents discover the creative processes of fashion design 

The project will give the opportunity to thirty young fashion students to transform 150 kg of textile waste provided by Roba Amiga into new, valuable products with their own brand. And you can see it with your own eyes. In addition, you can follow their creative process and get inspired by how to get the most out of recycled materials.

2. Connect with leading professionals

Students will not be alone in this "non-formal learning" process. Among the council of experts that will lead the great fashion upcycling marathon, will be the likes of Krizia Robustella (design), Victor von Schwarz (pattern design), Back to Eco (market and sustainability) and Robert Thompson (Materfad) , who will work closely with the design students in the conceptualization of a more responsible industry.

3. Understand the current problem and turn it around

Fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world. The way we are consuming is accelerating production rates and carbon dioxide emissions have already reached 12.8 million tons of waste. Our consumption habits are the cause of this situation, but we often have a hard time taking responsibility for our own actions. In this context, the MODA-FAD Sustainable Challenge 2019 becomes a unique opportunity to reflect collectively on what it is that is driving us away from responsible consumption and how we can redefine the industry focusing on sustainability, ethics and responsibility.

Come join us this Friday, 29th November at Disseny Hub Barcelona. The programme will begin with a brainstorming session by Krizia Robustella, Back to Eco, Make and Robert Thompson. Then we will enjoy a production and communication workshop with the help of professionals such as Victor von Schwarz and prepare the exhibitions for the next day. This activity is free and open to the general public.
