“The New European Bauhaus – Werkstatt der Zukunft” will redefine the future of the European fashion and textile industry
More courage for change! The conference “The New European Bauhaus –Werkstatt der Zukunft” by Fashion Council Germany will bring together international experts in the context of Frankfurt Fashion Week on 6 July to redefine the future of the European fashion and textile industry. The conference is inspired by Ursula von der Leyen‘s initiative “The New European Bauhaus”, which she first presented in her “State of the Union” speech in September 2020. By bringing the Green Deal to the people, „The New European Bauhaus“ is a creative and interdisciplinary movement, convening a space of encounter to recuperate and revisit sustainable practices, empower the most inspiring practices of today and design future ways of living, at the crossroads between art, culture, social inclusion, science, digitalisation and technology. The COVID crisis has shown that many topics are interlinked and that new thinking comes from breaking silos, just as the Bauhaus movement did one hundred years ago.With „The New European Bauhaus – Werkstatt der Zukunft” conference on 6 July 2021, #NewEuropeanBauhausmovement will get adapted to the fashion industry for the first time.
