Ep 3: Is technology enabling the implementation of the circular economy?

Episode 3 of The Impact Fashion Podcast focuses on technology. The episode includes an interview with Muchaneta Kapfunde, Editor in Chief of FashNerd.com.

FashNerd is a a digital magazine escalating the adoption of Fashion Technology. So naturally, I wanted to Muchaneta about how technology is being used to progress the industry towards circularity.

During the episode we talked about:

  • How fashion brands are using data and AI
  • The tension between demanding more action on sustainability and celebrating the industry’ achievements so far
  • The importance of collaborating to drive change

The fashion industry’s future depends on collaboration. For us to achieve pace and scale change, we need to collaborate.
