Every year around this time, I try googling a list of fashion events happening around the world, and I’m never able to find a comprehensive list…
So, I put one together for us.
This list focuses mainly on sourcing, tradeshows and conferences with an emphasis on sustainable fashion, specifically.
I’ve also divided the events into USA and International — if there’s a tradeshow or conference that’s missing, please email me and I’ll add it to the blog post!
