What we do

Our aim is to advance the subject of sustainable development in the fashion industry,
through sharing best practices and implementing collective intelligence, so that the players
operating in Paris make the fashion capital a slow fashion capital by 2024. In the field,
we organize, on a voluntary basis, task forces to co-create concrete action plans on specific
topics. We also develop awareness-raising events. Find here, our achievements and results.
