Digital Events / Podcasts


How digital connectivity in fashion is changing the game

Michael Colarossi, Avery Dennison’s vice president, product line management, innovation, and sustainability catches up with Neil C. Hughes on The Tech Talks Daily podcast where they discuss Avery Dennison’s journey to becoming more digitally focused, delving into how innovations in embellishment technology are blurring the lines between the physical and digital world, improving customer experiences, supply chain visibility, sustainability and circularity in the apparel market.


Textiles and apparel companies face uncertain times

Circular apparel consumption, product traceability, and Scope 3 emissions reduction were hot topics at COP27 in Egypt this year. Debbie Shakespeare, senior director, sustainability, compliance & core product line management at Avery Dennison joined a high-profile panel discussing ‘Best Practices from Sustainable Textiles & Apparel’. Debbie’s key message: “Digital ID technology will play a vital role in closing the circularity loop regarding recycling. Once you have a digital label on a garment, firstly you can tell the consumer where they can get the item recycled in the right way, and secondly, it helps the recycler know what the fibre content is and they can expect out of it.” Watch the full session recording below. 


Premier League Philadelphia Fan Fest

Avery Dennison was at Dilworth Park in Philadelphia last October with our Premier League partners for a weekend filled with football, fans, and fun. We had a great time customizing shirts, giving away special jerseys and hats, speaking with so many football fans, and celebrating the weekend's games in a safe and friendly atmosphere. Watch the weekend recap below.


How to get ready for apparel legislation with Digital IDs

Digital care labels create a bridge between the physical label on a garment, and the digital identity stored in the cloud.” In the latest AAFA Industry Chat, Mike Colarossi, vice president, product line management, innovation, and sustainability at Avery Dennison explains how digital solutions are helping transform the fashion industry, by using triggers such as QR codes and NFC to link to information-rich Digital Product Passports (DPPs). Brands need DPPs to comply with incoming traceability legislation. Consumers who care about the planet want material composition and ethical supply chain data to inform their purchase decisions. And industrial textile recyclers urgently need to know how to process unwanted apparel. DPPs provide a solution on all these levels.


If garments could tell a story, what would I want my outfit to say?

Mike Colarossi, Vice President, Product Line Management, Innovation and Sustainability at Avery Dennison joins the Fail Faster Podcast to share his belief that "Anything is Possible" if you put the right energy, curiosity, and conviction into the mix. He gives us a glimpse of an exciting future for the apparel industry, where digital triggers tell a garment’s story. Digitizing vital information about recycling the garment can help consumers contribute to a circular economy too. This episode is a peek at early ideations that lead to huge disruptions.
