The 2021 fall edition of THE RESPONSIBLE FASHION SERIES is coming to Antwerp. In this multi-stakeholder and co-creation oriented event, academia from all over the world, industry and policymakers meet to reflect on the future of fashion. Key question for this edition: “Can Fashion Save the World?” As far as Antwerp is concerned, the answer is a wholehearted YES. And we have the talents to prove it.
