In the crisis, fashion becomes a victim of its own business model and is more merciless than ever. With her ZDF documentary “Pandemic: How the fashion industry is suffering” Anja Utfeld provides insight into the current situation in the industry with content from Mirjam Smend, Dr. Peter Rinnebach (Accenture), Dr. Gisela Burckhardt (Femnet) and Prof. René Fahr (University of Paderborn), among others.
Sneaker label, ethletic, and the denim label, DAWN Denim, are doing it now. What has long been part of a common and indispensable business model in restaurants and bars, has been established for other industries since 2018 by the founders of the start-up, Tip me. A tip as a sign of appreciation for those people who sew our sneakers, t-shirts, jeans, etc.
Since the beginning of the Corona crisis, major fashion brands have cancelled already completed as well as ongoing productions and orders amounting to around 1.5 billion US dollars in more than 1,000 clothing factories in Bangladesh alone. Payments are suspended. The impact on the
underpaid garment manufacturers involved in the process is serious. There is no social safety net.
What comes after Corona? That question is currently omnipresent. In order to use this crisis as an opportunity and to save the newly lived togetherness into the #postpandemic future, Holger Petermann from Munich communication agency, THINK INC., has launched the #GuteLuft campaign.

In another round of talks, she will find out what “post-Corona” feels like and what her conversation partners are now observing.

The 4th edition of GREENSTYLE munich could not take place due to the corona crisis. The cancellation came on the day of the event. All costs were incurred and no income generated. The existence of the GREENSTYLE munich fair, which anyway already worked according to the motto karma instead of cash, is threatened. Therefore we started a Corona relief action on Startnext.
