British Council. European Sustainable Fashion Workshop

Generic fashion and design photo

As part of the Madrid Fashion Capital programme, the British Council, in partnership with Madrid City Council, is organising this professional meeting on sustainability in fashion, for Spanish, French, Greek and Portuguese designers.

The workshop will be directed by Alice Holmberg, Associate Professor at Central Saint Martins design school, and will feature the participation of designers from the brand ONEBYME, which specialises in the circular economy. The goal is to attract young fashion professionals who aspire to sustainability in their work. The issues addressed will include the myths about sustainability, consumption and aesthetics, the direction of sustainability today, and its importance for start-up fashion companies.

The meeting is intended for designers and brands who have been active in the field of sustainability for two years and who want to learn new ways to build and shape their business in the European market. The event will be held in the Cecilio Rodríguez Pavilion, on the Paseo Uruguay in Madrid’s El Retiro Park. The entrance is via the Puerta de Granada, opposite Avenida Menéndez Pelayo, 67.

The deadline for presentation of the candidacies ends on 12 November. The British Council will cover the enrolment and registration costs of the designers selected to take part in the event.
