#54: Kathleen Rademan, Director of the Innovation Platform, Fashion for Good.
Since 2017, Fashion for Good has been committed to making fashion a force for good. Through its innovation platform, they bring together key players across the entire industry who are committed to powering the future of fashion by testing and scaling ecological and sustainable solutions that are good for both people and the planet.
Because change also comes from the consumer, Fashion for Good created, in 2018, the Fashion for Good Museum: the world’s first museum for sustainable fashion where we can learn where our clothes come from, their impact, and the next innovations that will shape the future of fashion.
In this new episode of the podcast Smart Creation, Kathleen Rademan, Director of the Innovation Platform at Fashion for Good tells us how the platform works, how it is financed, its innovative projects and the particularity of their museum.
“I wanted to work in an environment they had a true impact, where I could go to bed at night and knowing that everything I’m doing is making a little difference in the world where we living and in particular for futures generations, that’s why I’ve decided to make this change.”
“I feel optimistic when you have large sums of funding allocated by governments to trial and test innovations, like what we’ve done in the New Cotton Project and T-REX Project.”
“We engage all different types of fashion brands as well as manufacturers across the world to introduce them to new innovations that are more sustainable that is convince.”
“We don’t have all fashion players on our platform, because the goal is really not to be, accessible to everyone, we really want to work with people they are truly committed to sustainability.”
“The idea behind this museum is to give consumers the opportunity to be educated on how the fashion industry works, to give them knowledge and information on why things don’t work.”
