Fashioning a Recovery Making Detroit a Sustainable Fashion Capital


The webcast "Fashioning a Recovery" showcases discussions between apparel industry leaders on how fashion brands and manufacturers are making Detroit Michigan a production center for conscious clothing.

The global fashion industry was hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis. One of the positive is the regained concern for sustainability from consumers, businesses, and organizations alike.

Detroit used to be one of the largest industrial capital in the world. Today, with the help of technology, innovation, and collaboration, fashion companies can help the region regain its glory. 


Watch the full webcast "Fashioning a Recovery" below.

 

 

The Industrial Sewing and Innovation Center (ISAIC) is a Detroit-based nonprofit organization committed to creating a sustainable community empowered ecosystem for apparel manufacturing.

It partners with visionary organizations, companies, and individuals who want to revolutionize the way apparel is manufactured through a new approach to talent force development.

The organization aims to create a positive impact through responsible production of high-quality garments, a responsible manufacturing model that guarantees the wellbeing of the community and planet.

Many innovative companies plan to expand their operations to Detroit. But making the city an epicenter for building a more sustainable fashion industry is a collaborative effort between fashion consumers, organizations, and businesses.

The global fashion and apparel industry is in deep need of transformation. It's one of the largest polluters globally. The overproduction and overconsumption of cheap clothes create massive amounts of waste, pollution, and carbon dioxide every year.

Detroit is building itself to be a responsible production hub for the fast-growing apparel industry. "Fashioning a Recovery" is a platform to learn about smart manufacturing applied to on-demand apparel production. It can push Detroit to become a new home for brands seeking sustainable production alternatives.

In the webcast, leaders in the fashion and apparel manufacturing industries talk about how automated and computer-assisted on-demand manufacturing will create jobs and a highly-qualified workforce.
