This involves a 12-week curriculum, including mentorship from corporate partners Adidas, C&A, Galeries Lafayette, Kering, PVH Corp, Target and Zalando.

These start-ups will be supported by the Fashion for Good-Plug and Play Accelerator. The technologies being supported include bio based dyes and fibres made from banana and software developed specifically for closet management

The Accelerator Programme is part of Fashion for Good’s Innovation Platform, which also includes a Scaling Programme and the Good Fashion Fund.
