Mistra Future Fashion annual meeting held in Stockholm
Around 90 guests, research partners and industry partners representing different stages of the value chain, producers, designers, fashion brands, charity/reuse, recycling, forest industry and policy makers took part in the Mistra Future Fashion’s Annual programme meeting in Stockholm. Six years into the programme, the meeting carried out an extensive review.

The meeting was organised during September 27-28, 2017. Day one was dedicated to a review of results, new knowledge and innovations, all with purpose to contribute to the programme vision to enable a systemic change of the fashion industry and society.

Examples of this was latest theories for circular fashion, how to design for circular economy and exploring fast and slow fashion, and what’s in between. The Circular Design Speed project together with Filippa K by University of the Arts London was highlighted as industry example.

Swerea IVF’s presented their work with contribution of new LCA data on fibres, processes and chemicals, or their microfibre analysis of why fabrics shed. Further an extensive assessment of new business models was presented by PlanMiljo and IVL, and ongoing work on demonstrators of new sustainable fibres, governance on sustainable production under the lead of Swerea IVF. Copenhagen Business School presented new statistics and knowledge about consumer behaviour on sustainable fashion.

IVL and IIIEE presented their impact assessment of how to best influence textile fibre recycling including evaluating mandatory EPR and a design proposal of an efficient EPR scheme.

Recycling theme presented strong news was as the chemical recycling project Polycotton by Chalmers and RISE (together with Södra) for the first time could present real filaments in good quality of recycled cotton from polystercotton fibre blends. The process is also assessed to be highly feasible in existing production infrastructure of the pulp industry which means promising possibilities for implementation into industry.

Four workshops were organised on day two. These are “Criteria for Sustainability – Practical use of the concept of Sustainability” and “Making use of LCA data”, both by Sandra Roos, “Is in-built recyclability a future track of sustainable cotton coloring?” by Hanna de la Motte and Romain Bordes, and “Driving more sustainable consumption” by Claudia Rademaker.
