Fashion entrepreneurs discuss slow fashion and their eco-responsible business models

CQCD members only, Sustainable development June 8, 2021
9:00 am to 10:00 am Online
Debbie Zakaib, Anne-Marie Laflamme, Vanessa Lachance

An ethical movement that respects the environment and people is increasingly taking place in the fashion industry. Anchored, in what is called slow fashion, more and more brands develop ethical collections, respectful both of people (working conditions of employees and consumers increasingly aware of their environmental impact) and the environment (local productions , reduction of the ecological footprint, recycling, circular economy).

Montreal brand atelier b is part of this movement and with the launch of a new circular economy project, it can boast of being the first Canadian clothing brand to have zero waste production. In order to learn more about their initiatives, we will have the pleasure of welcoming Anne-Marie Laflamme, designer and co-founder of Atelier b.

We will also have the pleasure of welcoming Vanessa Lachance, co-founder and owner of Signé Local, the showcase for local creators. Whether online or in physical stores, Signé Local offers visibility to a whole range of quality Quebec products and has been emphasizing support to local brands since 2017.
