This event is split into two parts: first, Dr. Mariangela Lavanga will talk about the role of sustainability in fashion, as well as it's impact on the circular economy and then, there will be a CLOTHING SWAP at the Erasmus Sustainability Hub!
Dr. Mariangela Lavanga is a cultural and fashion economist, currently the lead partner, researcher and manager of “RE-FRAME FASHION", which involves piloting three new courses in fashion and sustainability, entrepreneurship, and heritage.
She is the programme co-ordinator of the prestigious International Master in Cultural Economics and Entrepreneurship and the co-founder and co-coordinator of the first and successful academic Minor Fashion Industry in the Netherlands. Her research features the interrelations between creative industries, economy and cities from two perspectives - cultural economics and economic geography.
Circular economy, sustainability and fashion industry are at the core of her interests. Dr. Lavanga also lectures on Economics of Fashion; Design and Architecture; Honors Program Arts and Culture Studies on sustainability intermediaries in the fashion industry: Heritage and Fashion.
Furthermore, the lecture will be followed by a clothing swap at the Erasmus Sustainability Hub, where you will be able to bring you own clothes (and not only) and exchange them for someone else's!
