Not discouraged by a global pandemic, Fashion Revolution held a week-long showcase of over 60 global trailblazers, platforming sustainability experts, innovators, and creatives via its showcasing initiative Fashion Open Studio, which launched in 2017. The events ranged from talks with industry pioneers and DIY craft workshops to life drawing sessions, all held online in true 2020’s fashion. We rounded up the key moments from this year’s Fashion Revolution Week.
After debuting his eponymous label “Germanier” in 2018, the Central Saint Martins graduate’s signature upcycled glitter-strewn textiles have earned the young designer his reputation as a master of sustainable luxury.
Showcasing textile samples, toiles, and an array of garments, Germanier offered a real Fashion Open studio, giving viewers a candid introduction to his Paris-based atelier with assistance from his right-hand man Melvin Zöller. The duo revealed a unique glimpse into the inner workings of a sustainable label, sharing the process behind creating a Germanier piece and the importance of “glorious garbage and terrific trash.”
