The way we understand fashion is changing. Fashion is no longer just about looking good, it is about being environmentally and ethically aware of how the clothes are being manufactured, where they are coming from, and what impact a piece of clothing has on our environment.
Producing sustainable footwear is a complicated process. Given the environmental impact of a global production of 20 billion pairs of shoes yearly, the stakes are high. When teaming up during DEDI Green Gate Workshop, the two footwear designers, Youssef Anwar and Anna Poulsen, gained valuable knowhow.
DEDI Green Gate aims to be part of exploring and promoting solutions through dialogue between Egyptian and Danish designers, entrepreneurs, professionals, researchers, and students working in the fashion field and concerned with a more sustainable approach to fashion.
How can we transform an industry plagued with a massive carbon footprint into one that inspires people without harming the environment? The 23 Danish and Egyptian green fashion designers, entrepreneurs and students explore this question together in Copenhagen.
