Drapers choose to convert this year's Sustainable Fashion Awards into a week-long content-based celebration due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Called Drapers’ celebration of fashion’s changemakers, the week is starting with the launch of an exclusive report. Click here to register.
It provides a series of interviews, profiles, and insights that encourage key players to create a more sustainable fashion industry.
The report also introduces a list of Ones to Watch, 20 new and emerging sustainability-focused businesses handpicked by the Drapers team.
The fashion industry is the second-largest polluter globally. It creates large amounts of waste, pollution, and carbon emissions each year. It also consumes massive quantities of natural resources, water, energy, contributes to deforestation and plastic crisis.
By making impactful decisions with innovations and new technologies, fashion companies must change their operations to reduce waste, pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions.
The inaugural Drapers’ Changemakers Week is developed in partnership with its sponsors ISKO and Duo to shape a more sustainable fashion future.
A special edition of the Drapers' print magazine was published on July 10th, 2020.
The Drapers Sustainable Fashion Awards 2020 winners and finalists are working hard to make positive changes every day. The competition honors fashion brands and retailers with decorations such as Best Supply Chain Initiative or Best Use of Technology for Good.
The winners were chosen by an independent panel of judges including fashion, retail, and sustainability experts to raise awareness of businesses and brands making a difference.
Top prizes are going to businesses including My Wardrobe HQ, Craghoppers, Raeburn, Nudie Jeans, and Wolf & Badger.
