About the event
Do not miss this opportunity to share, or learn your experience and views as already a active change maker in fashion or of circularity or as an "explore" who would like to know about it.
We Will be very pleased to welcome you all to interact with our speakers:
Anette Dimmen After 15+ years in brand & product development, serial entrepreneur Anette Miwa Dimmen launched AWAN (As We Are Now as a disruptive 24/7 comfort-first fashion concept built on circular principles and tech-driven business model.
On a mission to merge fashion with wellness, AWAN is closing the gap between the clothes that we buy and the clothes that we actually wear. And in the process drastically reducing overproduction and overconsumption. AWAN is the only Norwegian fashion brand in the Antler VC portfolio and currently raising their pre-seed round.
Saniya Nasir is a running training programs sponsored by the German Agency for International Cooperation (called GlZ) to help the employees of textile factories in Pakistan implement more circular processes. Saniya will share her experience and the challenges she faces to do so.
Our members Katya Varennikova and Sindhuja Sambangi will facilitate the discussion with all the participants.
You could contact and interact with the speakers and all our members on the KlimateNet App.
