Fashion forever

A new fashion industry is emerging, one that is user-oriented, technology-driven and more sustainable. Novel approaches and responsible solutions are being created and scaled up, so that fashion can continue to play an important role in people’s lives.

As always, human creativity is at the heart of progress in this industry. Take a front-row seat by the catwalk. Discover some of Sweden’s top fashion industry pioneers and get a glimpse of what’s to come. Together let’s pioneer the possible. 

Fashion forever is a toolkit about circular economy, with focus on the fashion and textile industry.  

Fashion forever replaces Fashion revolution toolkit. It is an update and will include the latest tendences in the industry, such us new channels, new tools and new business models.  

Fashion forever is also part of the Pioneer the possible concept.  

You can use communication materials from Pioneer the possible toolkit together with Fashion forever.
