About Eco Fashion Week
Eco Fashion Week (EFW) is the world’s largest sustainable fashion event. Launching in Vancouver, BC in 2010, EFW has successfully showcased 10 seasons featuring hundreds of designers and stylists from around the globe.
As a not-for-profit organization, Eco Fashion Week’s aim is to present the solutions and innovations that work to develop a more sustainable and responsible fashion industry. The Fashion industry is the 2nd most wasteful industry in the world, jeopardizing the health of our people, our resources and ultimately our planet. But incredible practices such as zero-waste production, environmentally-conscious textile treatment and development, as well as shifts in overall consumption, are changing the fashion industry landscape.
The sustainable fashion spectrum is diverse and multifaceted, as it considers the environment, the working conditions, the supply chain as well as responsible consumption practices. At Eco Fashion Week, we call this the Eco Recipe. In short, an Eco Recipe is individualistic and speaks to the ways companies, brands and individuals practice sustainability.
Entering its 11th season, Eco Fashion Week is breaking into the international market by launching in Seattle November 1st-4th. We look forward to bringing international brands to Seattle, and showcasing local talent through runway shows, showroom opportunities and our Collective Conversation.
