Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2017- Day 2
Lakme fashion week day 2 of the summer resort season 2017, begins with the discussion on how to make fashion sustainable as the wastage caused by the fashion industry is next to oil wastage. The discussion went on sustainable fashion with the panels from Italy, Fiona from Australia, Gaury, Smriti, Megha, Shubhi, Ruchi & Jaya, Rajesh Pratap Singh and Abraham & Thakore to be reassured that these wise artists are up to the challenge of guiding us out of wild lives.
Fashion Industry is second only to Oil in generating waste. Addressing this challenge, Lakme Fashion Week extends the runway to the quiet designers who are showing the clean way forward with repurposing waste and discards without expecting tiniest accolade.
Globally the Denim Industry consumes the gallons of water during the washing procedure. The big brands like Levis, VF Corporation, managed to reduce their water consumption through the sustainable fashion initiatives.
