Antwerp, 23-26 November 2016

The competence center Management, Culture and Policy of the University of Antwerp invites you to the 4th edition of the Non Western Fashion Conference about local fashion communities.

Fashion can be an important engine in the environmentally, culturally and economical sustainable development of communities with the potential to be a crucial element in the cultural ecosystem that nourishes identity formation. With this academic conference, we explore the contribution of small and medium fashion companies to the sustainable development of their local communities.

Lígia Carvalho Abreu and Tania Phipps-Rufus will speak about ‘Fashioning an Alternative Approach to the Current Fashion System: A Legal Perspective'.
