What does Professional Membership offer?

Once you become a Professional Member, as well as all the resources available to you as a Free Member, you will have access to all of our existing content and resources including:



What new content can I expect every month as a Professional Member?

The Sustainable Fashion Collective® is an ever-growing resource. As well as being able to access all of our archived content, every month we release the following content:

Is it for me?

... then it is for you. Whether you are a start-up, playing around with an idea, or are already in business, then we have the practical resources for you. Glean industry expert advice and real-life stories of overcoming challenges, then make your own vision come to life.

Ok, I'm excited. Tell me more!

Masterclasses:

Each month we release a Masterclass on a different topic directly related to responsible textile and fashion design or growing a sustainable business. For each Masterclass, we have garnered the help and support of one or more experts to provide webinars that take you through all of the crucial information you need to know on that topic. They are presented as a video, along with an audio "podcast" and notes-based takeaways - so no matter how you learn best, we have you covered.

We also include useful external links and downloadable resources in the form of glossaries, templates, workbooks and toolkits, saving you hours of trawling through the internet to find answers to your questions.

Whether you are an existing business or looking to start a new venture, there will be a Masterclass that will suit the information you are seeking. Popular Masterclasses include:

Browse all Masterclass topics here. To see an example of a Masterclass, we have a wonderful "taster" of an Interview with social enterprise, Birdsong.

Live Q&A's, webinars or coaching sessions with industry experts:

We host at least one monthly live online session with an industry expert. This format brings expert business owners and ethical fashion and textile pioneers from across the industry to you, to present and chat in an informal panel discussion or group setting format. If you are not available for the live session, you can send your questions in advance, and watch the replay whenever suits you.

See all upcoming and past events here - both physical and online.

Interviews:

We believe that consistent learning is key to growing successful businesses - and one of the best ways is to learn from people who have been in your shoes (if you can learn from their mistakes - even better). We have interviewed truly inspirational brands and ethical fashion pioneers, and have got down to the nitty-gritty - from how to launch a successful crowdfunding campaign, to setting up a pop-up shop, to getting featured in Vogue, to Waitrose becoming a first stockist... the experience of the brands we have interviewed is incredible, and all invaluable information. We pride ourselves on the authentic sources and honest conversation we bring.

Dive into all interviews here.

Technical tutorials:

As well as providing you with business advice and holistic resources, it is essential that you are armed with all of the required skills to create sustainable products that will hold value with the user. But being sustainable can be a minefield, which is why every month we cover a new topic from across the fashion and creative industries. Whether it is zero-waste design, how wool is produced, or draping on the stand - there is something to be learnt from every tutorial.

What do other Professional Members think about us?

"It's so interesting to hear other brands talk about how they started. If you're feeling overwhelmed, you listen to the videos and it gives you ideas on what you can do too." 

"There's loads of information that I'll just keep going back to!"

"...it's been incredibly helpful. There are some great people talking, and you've introduced us to new brands as well."

How do I cancel my Professional Membership?

You can cancel your Professional Membership at any time from your profile by going to "My Account" in the menu. Cancelling your recurring payment will deactivate your Membership, so you will no longer be able to log in to the site, no matter how long is left until your next due payment. You will then be downgraded to a free membership, meaning you can continue to access the blog, live Q&A's and lesson outlines, but not the full content. You can resubscribe at the normal monthly fee whenever you are ready.
