Kicking off the showcase, Fashionsustain will be held on Monday, July 22, 2019. Looking ahead for a better future, Fashionsustain is a conference devoted to revolutionizing the fashion and textile industries’ processes and production mechanisms, through collaborations, new technologies, and applied innovation.
With a goal of finding dynamic solutions to social and environmental problems, Fashionsustain’s purpose is to offer a fundamental transformation to the industry.

“As trailblazers within the textile industry, we try to spotlight what’s trending; whether that is covering certain topics or product advancements with vendors and mills. It’s important to address what’s happening in the industry to stay relevant. This year, sustainability was an obvious choice for our spotlight. Because being sustainable has reached a point that it’s too important to ignore, our show now explores the importance of speed to market, as well having the ability to supply eco-friendly sourcing options in order to retain and obtain buyers. Manufacturers are starting to see this as a requirement and not just an option due to increased global concerns about business practices. By adding Fashionsustain, along with building up the sustainable exhibition profiles on the show floor with a wide range of representation of countries across the globe, Texworld USA is making it really easy for attendees to clearly recognize and visit these kind of exhibitors.” said Jennifer Bacon, Show Director, Fashion & Apparel.
