FashionWeek Amsterdam is about to start and the program is packed! We selected some sustainable shows, events and talks to write down in your agenda.

15 January – SHOW LISSA KONNO

Driven by the urge to make recycling fashionable fashion designer Lissa Konno often uses textile waste as the main material source and inspiration for her work. She criticizes the wasteful and unethical ways of the fashion industry but is not afraid to do so in a vibrant and optimistic way. ‘Yours Truly’ is the newest project of Lisa Konno and will be presented during Amsterdam Fashion Week. The collection invites you to be part of the process of making a garment. It aims to gain back value for clothing by involving the wearer with the production of their wardrobe.
