Workshop on sustainable textile and fashion production
The workshop will focus on the topic of local textile and fashion production. In the workshop we will discuss and explore the creation of Manufacture Copenhagen and/or Manufacture Scandinavia, based on the model of Manufacture New York.
CEO and Founder of Manufacture NY, Bob Bland, and Co-Founder Amanda Parkes will kick off the workshop and is happy to share their business model as well as discuss how their experiences might inform local manufacturing in Copenhagen and/or Scandinavia.
Established in 2012, Manufacture New York is a New York City-based emerging fashion incubator + local manufacturing advocacy group that is partnered with the City of New York to create a 160,000 sf vertically-integrated, sustainable urban Manufacturing Innovation Center that combines emerging design support, workforce training, wearable tech R&D and affordable maker space for established artisans in one Brooklyn facility. This will be the first closed-loop fashion ecosystem optimized for reduced consumption, ethical & sustainable sourcing and transparency in the supply chain.
