The RIFT Summit Berlin – Responsible Innovators for Fashion & Textiles is an expert forum which will take place on Thursday, June 8th 2017 in Berlin’s Kulturbrauerei Palais Atelier as a satellite event to the WEARit Festival. The RIFT Summit gathers experts, creators and multipliers from various fields of the fashion and textile industries. Its aim is to foster responsible innovation in our industries with emphasis on forerunners within artisanal and industrial traditions, sustainability strategies and technological innovations. Join the driving forces with this curated expert forum and support the transformation of our industries in an inspiring atmosphere.
Big change is happening within the fashion and textile industries as companies try to incorporate innovative technologies – a future topic with high potential in growth and efficiency. As a start-up metropolis with dense research and development expertise, Berlin offers an excellent base for the movement of responsible innovation for fashion and textiles. Furthermore, the industry experiences a huge transformation as new innovations disrupt the textile sector. Berlin as a fashion technology hub has to face social, ecological and cultural challenges to connect each segment – craft, sustainability and technology – in an efficient and transparent way. Our approach is to connect experts within the industry to discuss the status quo and to set an agenda for future responsible innovation as a think tank within the fashion and textile industries.
