SUSSOut 03 | Future of Fashion
13th January 2019
Hauz Khas Village
New Delhi, India
SUSS, which started in January 2018, is a community and movement to build awareness and start conversations around sustainable fashion. Gauri and Lavanya, the co-founders, who both work in the apparel industry, realized that while there are many ‘hustlers,’ - individuals and organizations - working to make fashion a force for good across in India, there isn’t any platform that connects them all.
SUSS started as a Facebook group for conscious consumers, designers, makers, curators, writers, film-makers, and others to share experiences, discover new ideas, and collaborate on projects. Their ‘Hustlers Edit’ series is a way to highlight and share the work of some of their inspirational community members and their work in this space. SUSSout is SUSS’s offline event series which is currently hosted in Delhi. Through a combination of films, talks, mixers and workshops, every SUSSout event is a unique experience for attendees to #SUSSout different facets of sustainable fashion, talk about new ideas, and explore ways to make a difference.
