The payment of living wages in the textile industry must no longer be voluntary. The past (and the present) has shown that this does not work. That needs to change. That’s why we support the ‘Good clothes – fair pay’ campaign. You can too. With a simple signature.Continue reading

What a fantastic YEAR! And the next one is coming…
Breathless and happy, we look back on 2019 (and with correspondingly great enthusiasm towards 2020). So much has happened: People took to the streets to stand up for #climatejustice and other relevant issues. The awareness for sustainable fashion has increased enormously. There have been dazzling Fashion Revolution demos with increasing participation that have drawn attention to the poor working conditions in the textile industry. Conventional fashion operators and chains can no longer easily escape their responsibility. Something is happening, which is terrific.
Thank you 2019 – a lot has happend this year.
NEONYT’s Editorial Fashion Show in January drew the (chief) editors of the fashion magazines to the front row. In April, the Green Issue of VOGUE was published. In July, during Fashion Week Berlin, there was only one major theme: sustainability. This was followed by a focus on sustainability at the Milano Moda Donna and the “40 Years of VOGUE: Is this Fashion or Can this Go Away” exhibition devoted a large section sustainable alternatives.
As far as GREENSTYLE is concerned: we have also achieved a lot.
Following the 1st edition in October 2018, the trade fair and conference format has established itself as a serious and trend-setting event in its first year. In addition to two constantly growing events in the Munich Isarforum at the Deutsches Museum, we have created a lasting movement. We were at the “We make the City” festival in Amsterdam, organized various studios (including Streetlife, #GivingTuesday) and were at #biolife in Bolzano in November as a pilot project with seven brands.
Thanks to exhibitors, partners, supporters, sponsors, media, community
With our XS team (which is currently growing), we have turned the first B2C trade fair and conference format for sustainable fashion into an event within a year, the appeal and significance of which extends far beyond Munich’s city limits. In October, we had 48 exhibitors, 40 speakers and guests from all over Germany and neighboring countries, visitors from Great Britain, Luxembourg, France etc.
And therefore we say THANK YOU today!
Thank you for believing in us.
Thank you for sharing our enthusiasm (or letting it infect you).
Thank you for your commitment.
Thank you for your support.
Thank you for the exciting discussions.
Just THANK YOU.
With this in mind, we wish you a good end of the year spurt and a brilliant start into a great year 2020. Together with pleasure. At the GREENSTYLE (13th to 15th March 2020), at the SALON GREEN, Fashion Revolution, climate strikes…
