Mini-Lectures on design and sustainability by designers and experts from Germany and Indonesia


As the public is being exposed to a variety of current sustainable fashion practices in Indonesia through the Slow Fashion Lab, we would also like to show you how this practice is explored in Germany by inviting several designers who came all the way to Jakarta to share their stories and experience from materials to workers and from techniques to distribution.
Together with two Indonesian designers who exhibit their works at the Slow Fashion Lab, we hope that the exchange of knowledge and learning will inspire each of us to start creating a sustainable way of living in our daily fashion action, not only as an individual but also as a part of today’s society.
