The annual Ethical Fashion SOURCE Expo brings together international manufacturers, suppliers and cooperatives working to high ethical standards. In 2010 the Ethical Fashion Forum launched a Designer Pavilion as part of the Expo, showcasing some of the very best designers pioneering in sustainable sourcing alongside outstanding design.

The event includes a programme of seminars, introducing new products and exemplary supply and production systems, as well as trends and resource areas.

Invitations to attend and exhibit are extended internationally.

GOALS

SOURCE Expo aims to promote sustainable fashion practices, and facilitate sustainable sourcing amongst fashion professionals. The event aims to create a platform and opportunities for suppliers with exemplary practices. Ultimately, its goal is to reduce the environmental impact of the industry, support fair and equitable trade, and reduce poverty.
