The SUSTAINABLE FASHION ALLIANCE FOR INTERNATIONAL MARKETS (FASCINATE) project ́s aim is to support the internationalization of EU textile and fashion SME clusters that are working towards the development of circularity and sustainability in these industries. Besides the textile and fashion industry, this partnership will also seek a cross-sectoral collaboration with the technology and footwear sectors.
The project aims to build a European clusters & companies network collaboration (the ESCP-4i), related to the development of circularity & sustainability, in the fashion, textile and footwear industries. It will promote new European value chains incorporating cross sectoral cooperation between fashion/textile, footwear & technology, by means of cooperation, exchange of knowledge & good practices among the members of the project consortium. As a result the partners will create a joint internationalization strategy for sustainable fashion brands and companies in Europe, geared towards markets outside of the EU interested in sustainable fashion products (to consolidate shared objectives and define a relevant action plan for the participating clusters and the companies they represented).
