A hands-on practical workshop for designers, producers and retailers who have heard the term "circularity" and are interested in the concept but are not sure where or how to start. In this workshop, you will learn from designers who have already embedded circularity into their practice.

What are the different decisions they are taking as a consequence of embedding circularity?

What challenges have they faced and how have they dealt with them?

What are the benefits of placing people and the planet at the centre of what they do bring to their business?

40 person maximum capacity - please register here

This panel will spark conversation around resource recovery, circular economy and early stage mycelium trials. 

Our panelists will explore how mycelium can help transform the Australian Fashion Industry's resource recovery issues and how all of our packaging from fashion to food can be grown to order.

With the triple threats of climate change, resource depletion and waste build-up, a radical transformation of how we interact with nature is needed. Designers interested in the future of materials are taking inspiration from nature’s design systems and creating a circular economy of materials, grown, fabricated, used and, at the end of their life cycle, biodegraded or reused. Fungi are catalysts for this change. Their natural design principles and manufacturing capabilities are being engineered in the upcoming biotechnology revolution. Using minimal energy, fungi can be engineered to produce high-performing

materials with precision.

Solving fashion’s biggest issues: Overproduction, overconsumption and high quality resource recovery

09:00 -10:00

This panel brings together three of the biggest names in the international movement towards regenerative farming of natural fibres. The discussion will explore the farming practices that restore biodiversity, soil health and ecosystem functionality to landscapes the fashion industry has typically used and abused. From smallholder cotton farms to the Australian wool industry, to the rangelands of Mongolia this panel will look at how changing the way we farm natural fibres can drive positive outcomes for communities, farmers and landscapes. 


Reducing consumption and production is the only way fashion brands can make good on sustainability. As brands rethink their operations this panel will look at alternative business models that can help keep products in use for longer whilst providing pathways for all to access high quality products. The panel will look at strategic partnerships that can help any brand take a step in the right direction today.
