Since 2013, the Global Fashion Exchange (GFX) has reached over 850 million people across seven continents, collaborated with partners from the United Nations to H&M brand and saved 110 tons of clothing from going to landfill.
In London, Global Fashion Exchange recently teamed up with the West London Waste Authority (WLWA) to host a Swap & Pop-up Talks event at the V&A South Kensington (Victoria and Albert Museum). Industry leaders speaking at the event included GFX Co-Founder Patrick Duffy, international, award-winning ethical photographer, director and published author Charney Magri, Influencer Joanna Cooper, and Helen Sahi, Global Senior Director of Sustainability at Avery Dennison.
Helen Sahi spoke of her very own wedding dress and the ability to tell a story across multiple generations of her family. While the rebirth of garments is powerful, she also painted a vision of how technology can provide meaningful change for future generations.
