Sustainable Fashion Businesses & Creatives' May Live Q&A: Eco Underwear

Sustainable Fashion Businesses & Creatives' May Live Q&A: Eco Underwear

Stephanie Steele Monday, 18 May 2020

This is now available as a lesson within our Producing A Responsible Underwear and Lingerie Line Masterclass: The Intimate Business of Sustainable and Ethical Lingerie

Due to Covid-19 we moved our usually physical networking evenings online. Instead of the usual format, join us for a cosy hour-long live Q&A with guest experts from across the fashion and creative industries to talk about ethical and sustainable underwear and lingerie - and how the premise of this has changed while we're in lockdown.

Underwear and lingerie is inherently personal, with markets across the board for functional or sexy, eco and quick. In this session we want to dive deeper in to how underwear and lingerie can affect our mood, how sales have changed over lockdown and specifically how you go about launching a sustainable or ethical underwear and lingerie brand.

Simply head here at the time stated to join in with the Q&A - the stream and chatbox will show below just beforehand. You must be a registered Sustainable Fashion Collective Member: join here.

Guest Speakers:

First guest: Nicola Hopkins, Bold Intimates

Bold Intimates is an expert product development studio for lingerie and swimwear brands, offering technical and sustainable solutions. After working for over a decade in the intimate apparel sector honing her technical skill and knowledge, founder Nicola Hopkins created Bold Intimates through her desire to consciously restore and regenerate a product development system that is relevant to our world today.

Second guest: Katie and Amanda McCourt, PANTEE

PANTEE is the world’s first underwear brand that gives dead and rejected stock a new lease of life by transforming pre-consumer t-shirts, that would otherwise go to landfill, into comfortable and stylish underwear. Founded in 2020 by sisters, Amanda & Katie McCourt, PANTEE products are designed and brought to life in the UK.

Third guest: Maïna Cisse, The Underargument

Maïna dreamt about bras from age 5. When others little girls dreamt of being princesses, she dreamt about being grown-up, being a 34C (very specifically) and having her first bra. Getting older, lingerie was therapy to her. It’s always been her go-to pick me up. Her rebellious attitude combined with her multicultural background helped shape a brand that thrives to empower women with their own individuality.
