Shaping Fashion

Launched in 2018, Shaping Fashion is a global initiative to scale sustainable transformations in the fashion industry through the Global Shapers network. From 23-29 April 2018 during Fashion Revolution Week, thirteen hubs collaborated with local teams of industry experts to organise events, workshops, clothes swaps and film screenings to push for change in their communities.

Join the movement for eco-ethical fashion in 2019!

Under the leadership of Amsterdam Hub, hubs around the world organised meaningful events, workshops, clothes swaps and film screenings to call for revolutionary and ethical change in their communities.

For example, Vancouver Hub gathered industry experts and next generation fashion designers to provide insights on the challenges, opportunities and innovations facing sustainable fashion.

The hub also hosted an upcycling workshop to mainstream circular economy models to make ethical, sustainable fashion the norm – and Dusseldorf Hub hosted similar events too.

Check out more highlights from: Corrientes Hub, Lahore Hub, and Davao Hub.

Other participating hubs include: Iloilo Hub, Lusaka Hub, Lyon Hub, Milan Hub, Quito Hub, Raleigh Hub and Taipei Hub.

Recently, Amsterdam Hub presented the project to Dutch Prime Minister, Mark Rutte, and asked if there were any areas where their expertise might be helpful.

After the meeting, the hub reflected:

"So much has to happen in the world, but on days like this I do honestly feel empowered that we can be and make the change. Especially when being able to share ideas and collaborate with like-minded individuals across the world through the Global Shapers Community!"
