Future Fabrics Expo 2012

The second Future Fabrics Expo was once again hosted by The London College of Fashion with the support of the Centre for Sustainable Fashion, on 7th – 9th November 2012.

As in 2011, the expo showcased over 500 high quality lower environmental impact fashion fabrics, suitable for mainstream, mid- and high-end fashion.

The second edition also explored a wider framework: it aimed to provide an even more inspiring and informative sourcing experience by looking deeper into the fashion and textile supply chain, in order to drive forward the discussion on sustainability, and to demonstrate that responsible fashion design goes beyond using sustainable fabrics.

In all our projects The Sustainable Angle aims to creatively showcase novel approaches to improving the fashion design system as well as fashion design practice.


“What a great opportunity to be able to see the various approaches and aspects of sustainability and be able to compare the fabrics side by side.”

“…a small but perfectly formed affair!”

“Future Fabrics Expo is brilliant and cohesive and provided me with lots of interesting new solutions”

“The expo was very good and the cause is really important. The expo was very well put together… I really appreciated the expo, and I would like to visit again.”

“Oh joy to be confronted with the largest choice of sustainable fabrics and sustainable fabric producers I have ever seen in one place. Well done for bringing together so many sustainable mills and producers.”

“Each time I visit…I am impressed with the number of alternative fabrics that are available.”
