Practices, processes and purpose. Those are the ways the fashion industry can work toward sustainability. Fashiondex and LIM College have partnered up for the second time to present the Fashion & Sustainability Summit, a one-day conference focusing on tangible solutions to help fashion businesses operate with sustainably and responsibly.

A sustainable business model can be both ethical and profitable and the Fashion & Sustainability Summit will explore ways for companies to increase sustainable practices in every area from fabric design and post-textile management to shipping and more.
