Register for Circular Fashion Now - 17th March 2023

Hello CS family.

We are beyond thrilled to announce the launch of Circular Fashion Now (CFN) – a City of Melbourne sponsored event designed for small and medium sized businesses in the fashion, apparel and textile sector to network with one another while learning about and implementing circular strategies. We believe in the power of SMEs and the systems change that WE can begin to enact together.

Circular Fashion Now’s pivotal first event in Melbourne on 17th March 2023 will include: a series of interactive discussions, networking plus the option to participate in a hands-on workshop.

We hope you'll join us! Take part in two ways:

    *Please note, Full Day tickets include a hands-on afternoon session for designers working in industry. This workshop has limited capacity, so be quick to avoid disappointment.

With thanks to our generous sponsors: City of Melbourne, Coffee Supreme, Pals and Monceau Co.

Please reach out for other sponsorship opportunities.



Morning: The symposium is an open dialogue of panels and talks discussing the challenges and opportunities of shifting to a completely circular model of fashion and textiles in Melbourne, but also across Victoria and Australia.

Lunch: We've designed lunch to be a place to connect and network with others in the industry. Make the most out of opportunities to collaborate and enact systems change.

Afternoon: The workshop component is an open-source environment for businesses to discover practical solutions to the circularity issues they face. This workshop is MOST ideal for practitioners who are currently working in industry.


CFN is for active fashion, apparel and textile professionals to...

– Discover practical circular economy solutions

– Leverage their size and agility as a strength

– Grow a network of circular minded businesses

– Contribute to greater systems change in how clothes are designed, produced and cycled

The first CFN event will also launch the Circular Sourcing Marketplace, a Sustainability Victoria (Circular Economy Business Innovation Centre) supported platform designed to enable Victorian businesses to buy and sell surplus and dead stock textiles.

We can't wait to connect! Join us for CFN on 17th March 2023.
