THE FUTURE OF FASHION – all eyes on fibre innovation

Side event

Monday 15.01.2018


In the name of all organizers and partners, the Embassy of Sweden is happy to invite you to an evening devoted to the future of fashion. This time, we will take a closer look at fibre innovation.

Come and meet some of the German and Swedish front runners in creating a sustainable fashion system. Such as Gustav Sandin Albertsson, researcher at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, whose project Blend Re:wind has found a way to recycle mixed-fiber textiles by separating cotton and PES or Lena-Marie Jensen, project coordinator at Smart Textiles, who will introduce us to “Paper Textiles” – fibres made of paper from Swedish forests. Sigrid Barnekow, Program Director at Mistra Future Fashion, will deliver the Keynote.

After the seminar we invite you to a reception where you can expand your international fashion network and have a closer look at our showcases.

Check the Embassy’s homepage for more information about the program and speakers.

Participation is free of charge. As the number of participants is limited, we kindly ask you to register at for a personal invitation.
