How green is your supply chain? Customers and investors are becoming increasingly sensitive to the environmental impact of supply chains in production, consumption and transport. And companies also realize that things have to change. But where do you start in the production process? Where is the biggest profit, environmentally, and maybe even financially. There is hope…. during this session 4 entrepreneurs present their innovative solution for a more sustainable industry: &Wider, The Fabricant, Excess Materials Exchange and Norman Hangers.

The Fabricant

Kerry is the founder of The Fabricant a digital fashion house leading the fashion industry towards a new sector of digital-only clothing. The digital-only fashion sector will explore new creative avenues, giving free rein to express aspects of the self outside the limits of the physical world.

Our work exists beyond the current concepts of catwalks, photographers, studios and sample sizes. For The Fabricant imagination is our only atelier, and our fashion stories are free from the constraints of the material world.

We work with luxury brands and retailers to create digital fashion experiences, as well as designing our own digital-only fashion collections.
