Zero Waste Fashion Designers

Charlie Bradley Ross Monday, 1 July 2019

For the first time, Avantex Paris played host to the Zero Waste Fashion Designers (Z429), a designers' collective from Spain, the Netherlands and Vietnam. Invited by the French label Milan AV-JC, the collection presented by the eleven zero-waste brands was developed in accordance with zero waste design principles, keeping offcuts to a minimum, if at all.

Avantex Paris is the international high-tech and innovative textiles trade show. The show was launched in response to today's consumer desire to reconcile fashion with the changing society they live in. The Zero Waste Design area was set up at the heart of the show in order to showcase innovations that help avoid waste in the industry. 

Here you can watch the full catwalk show that took place at Avantex and take inspiration from the cutting edge, zero-waste designs that went on display.

  • How to Write a Business Plan

    with Charlie Bradley Ross

    This is a downloadable guide on how to write a business model.

    Now that you have explored the potential of sustainable business models, you will have a good idea of the impactful business you want to build. It is time to construct the perfect business plan.

    Most importantly, a sustainable business model is about defining what success means to you and what you value. Is success offering work to artisan makers who would otherwise be in poverty? Is it sourcing and using materials that may have otherwise gone to landfill? Yes, you need a profit to survive and grow, but what else is important to you in your business plan?

    In this Lesson you will be guided through how to write a business plan as a responsible ethical business.
