Waste2Wear is participating in the BBC Storyworks Commercial Productions’ Fashion Redressed series, in association with the Global Fashion Agenda. This series, featuring our manufacturing partner Kim Duc, will focus on showcasing initiatives that are transforming the fashion industry.
Recently, a BBC Storyworks team wrapped up filming at the Kim Duc factory in Vietnam. The material covered will provide viewers with an inside look into the methods and technologies that make recycling plastics into fabrics a reality. The goal is to increase public understanding of the recycling process and to help distinguish genuinely recycled fabrics from faux ones.
The official announcement about this series will be made at the upcoming Global Fashion Summit, scheduled for 27-28 June in Copenhagen. At this event, Monique Maissan, the CEO of Waste2Wear, will be part of a panel discussion on Circularity, along with representatives from BBC Storyworks Commercial Productions and another industry partner, Farfetch.
During this event, Monique Maissan, CEO of Waste2Wear, will actively participate with BBC Storyworks Commercial Productions and one of the other partners, Farfetch, in a panel discussion on Circularity.
Maissan offered her insights on the feature, “I am truly honored that Waste2Wear will feature in this significant series. Even though we’ve been recycling plastics into fabrics since 2007, there is a lack of public knowledge about the scope of the process. I am excited to share what we do with the world and to help people identify and avoid fake recycled fabrics. My life’s passion is to make an impact in reducing plastic waste and I am so proud of what we achieve together with my team and with our partners, Kim Duc.”
The Fashion Redressed series will premiere in October. More details to follow.
