Report Innovation and sustainability in French Fashion Tech

This report presents an overview of innovation in fashion outlining possible opportunities for collaboration that address both economic and ecological sustainability. It also seeks to describe the conditions necessary for the fashion industry to achieve the United Nation’s Social Development Goals (SDGs).

It investigates the current French fashion tech arena, its definition, evolution and main fields of technological innovation.

Reducing pollution generated by the fashion industry requires the collective contribution of institutions, fashion groups and brands along with committed consumers but it should also be backed by funding for research into sustainable solutions. The emerging visionary fashion tech entrepreneurs can kickstart progress, but they can only do so with the support and contribution of the leading industry stakeholders that have far greater economic means.

This study is commissioned by the Innovation Department of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in France and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl).  It was written by Alice Gras and Claire Eliot and translated by Sophie Bramel.
