GFC – Global Fashion Conference is strongly committed to the promotion of a sustainable model of development.

In this conference, we welcome everyone engaged in the study and analysis of the fashion phenomenon – not only researchers from the academic world but, also innovative organisations and companies that work within the fashion system.

We believe this dialogue is the basis for creativity and innovation and raises the level of excellence in research and in the pursuit of a better quality of life.

GFC is held every two years in partnership with a university that conducts research in fashion studies. This University is involved in all aspects related to the scientific scope of the event.

GFC is committed to developing all efforts in the diffusion of the work presented and that demonstrates a consistent scientific basis subject to peer review.

The 2018 edition of GFC is hosted and curated in collaboration with the Centre for Sustainable Fashion, a University of the Arts London Research Centre based at London College of Fashion.
