“As long as you keep buying what they are making at the stores, that is what they are going to keep making. If you start asking questions, reading labels, its all there. The more you do that, the more you send emails and talk about it on social media and talk about it with your friends, you’re going to make them anxious”
— Patricia Ermecheo, OSOMTEX

In the midst of Paris Fashion Week enter the beautiful courtyard of the Google offices in Paris to experience the hype and futuristic decor designed and put together by the unmistakable fashion show event designers and producers Bureau Betak. The Fashion Tech Lab launch event was finally on! The fluorescent cube with the FTL logo and mirrors in the middle of the courtyard and the robot bartenders really made a statement of what FTL is all about; the power of technology for good. After grabbing a drink with the robot bartenders it was time to enter the world of the innovation.The 65 square meter interactive screen at The Google Arts Culture Lab was used to showcase custom 3D rendered content within an impossible laboratory of the future, giving an unprecedented glimpse into the ecosystem of each of the technologies and their unique problem-solving qualities.

OSOMTEX showcased their upcycled fibers made from discarded post-consumer waste in an interconnected mesh of upcycled yarns beautifully and symmetrically placed within an acrylic cube with incisions on the sides so that the guests could freely interact with the fibers of the future.  OSOMTEX’s mission is clear: solve the Fashion Industry’s waste crisis by closing the loop and avoid textiles from going to landfills, embracing the idea of a transparent circular economy in which resources are finally taken into an account in an industry that has been blind for decades.  

Over 200 guests* from the worlds of fashion, investment, technology, and sustainability were there to discover, advise or just to simply enjoy the game changers in the industry. FTL created the right atmosphere of dialogue, positivity and cooperation that is much needed today across the industry and it seems that world is ready for a big change.

The Future of Sustainable Fashion Talk @ Neushop 9/2/16

Patricia Ermecheo

Last Friday September 2nd we gathered at NEUSHOP Downtown Miami among local students, thinkers, creatives, designers, entrepreneurs, friends and family to engage in conversation with Adnan Razack, professor at Miami International University of Art & Design on the topic of sustainable fashion.

Neushop presents Osom Brand

We shared our experience of founding this company focused on up-cycling unwanted textiles; the journey of understanding the amount of discarded garments that make their way to landfills, to then develop textile waste into brand new pieces of clothing such as our socks.

NEUSHOP is continuously hosting events and initiatives where design is understood as a discipline that goes beyond the making of a finished product, and looks at resolving issues related to our quotidian lives comprehensively and responsibly. We decided we should collaborate and get together to talk about The Future Of Sustainable Fashion and learn more about the current impact this industry is having on our environment.
