Your presentation could be a highlight of the 8th#GSFW!

You should focus on innovative, sustainable, and circular design, materials and fabrics, and production as the main theme of the 8th #GSFW:

#innovation #creativeness #sustainablefashion #circularfashion.

  1. DESIGN should contribute to reducing the negative impact on ecosystems and prolonging the life cycle of clothing/products (recycling, zero waste cutting etc.)

  • Eco-friendly,
  • Fair, Ethical
  • Handcrafted manufacturing, preserving the national heritage has a special added value to the products but during the 8th#GSFW we would like to give preference to applicants who can demonstrate and present their innovative solutions (how to reduce waste, water, air pollution, CO2 emission or any negative environmental impact).
