Putting theory into practice
Close The Loop trajectories and sessions
Close The Loop is an online platform that guides fashion entrepreneurs towards a circular approach. But we also put the theory into practice with the Close The Loop trajectories, in which consultants and experts join forces with fashion companies who want to put sustainability at the top of their agenda. Together, we map the current situation, set goals and priorities, and chart a personal trajectory for each company.
In addition, we offer Close The Loop sessions: a program consisting of five online workshops to help you take the first steps towards a more sustainable way of working. During these group sessions, we take a look at the bigger picture (studying business models, among other things), we ask critical questions and encourage knowledge sharing. The result? An exchange of inspiration and experiences, as well as a personal plan that allows every participant to take action.
In 2017-2018, Café Costume, e5 mode and caroline biss signed up for a Close The Loop trajectory. For the 2018-2019 period, it was up to Bonneterie De Groote (Eskimo a.o.), Flanders Fashion Design International (Furore), CKS, JBC, The Woody Group (Woody), Labels by Andres (Xandres), Marylise & Rembo Styling Fashion Group and Novavo (Atelier Noterman).
