How to Make a Splash With a Sustainable Swimwear Line

Vicki Wallis Thursday, 13 February 2020

Swimwear holds exciting prospects for the future of sustainable fashion, with the market embracing sustainable materials on a large scale. Recycled polyester and recycled polyamide, along with materials made from marine plastic waste, are already associated with forward-thinking swimwear among consumers. Poised to be valued at over £22bn by the year 2024, the global swimwear market is attracting savvy fashion designers and retailers on the lookout for profitable opportunities to make a splash.

However, although full of opportunity, the market is also highly competitive, specialist, and has no clear, current leader - it’s no wonder swimwear is reported to be one of the hardest fashion markets to break into. 

In this Live Q&A, you’ll have the chance to learn directly from a fashion consultant specialising in women’s sustainable swimwear about the current state of the industry and how to craft an approach to tap into this booming market. The presentation will cover all the areas a designer or business needs to consider, from design to manufacturing, marketing to sales.
