Can fashion solve overproduction?
Season 4, episode 9 of our weekly podcast show on how technology is transforming the creative industries.
Today we discuss the environmental and social effects of overproduction in the fashion industry, and try to look ahead with optimism. We talk about:
Why overproduction occurs in the first place, and how it affects the Sell Through Rate at retailers.
Why is it so hard to get the data? We unwrap the extensive 2022 Fashion Transparency Index report.
The new market for discarded textiles, with oil refinery-type services in India and beyond.
The need for recycling innovations, and our recent visit to Renewcell’s new factory.
And our favourite digital and physical fashion initiatives that could turn the negative trend around.
