WEAR is Canada’s premier forum hosted by Fashion Takes Action, that aims to inspire and accelerate sustainability within the global fashion industry. This year’s theme, Impact with Intention, recognizes that it’s not enough to simply set a goal. Intention provides us with purpose, inspiration and motivation to achieve measurable impact.
Once again, WEAR is bringing global brand owners, retailers, academics, manufacturers, NGO’s, innovators, and policy makers together, to accelerate our collective efforts toward progress and a more conscious fashion future.
