Notably, while the environmental burden of the fashion industry has become a global issue, young people, especially Gen Z, are increasingly interested in sustainability efforts. Gen Z, born after the mid-1990s, has always been familiar with environmental and social issues, with more than 30 percent expressing a willingness to contribute to solving social issues. *22,000 products that consider the latest sustainability such as “ecology”, “ethics” and “decarbonization” will be on display, and many of the latest sustainable products that Gen Z care about will be featured in this exhibition.
Please come to the venue to report on the latest trends and products and materials you haven’t seen yet!
