Let's address the elephant in the room, there are too many clothes in the world.

The question is, do you want to be ahead of the curve, and not only look at how products are made but also how to restart a garment's life when the first is over? This panel explored the different strategies that brands and manufacturers can adopt to get ahead of the curve and create a system for reusing materials.
