Vision, strategy and goals of the world famous designer Nevena Nikolova
Nevena Nikolova is the beautiful side of textiles – she dresses world stars and public figures, including Elle McPherson, Nicole Scherzinger, Elizabeth Hurley, the president's wife Desislava Radeva and others. Fashion is much more than current colors and seasonal collections. Today it is fashionable to be sustainable and think about your impacts when creating a product or service. Nevena is an ambassador of good practices in the utilization and recycling of textiles, which are strongly advocated and well developed in Bulgaria through the activities of the Bulgarian Circular Textile Association.
12:00 – 12:30 Discussion
The CLOTH project – CLuster Alliance for the Transition to Green and Digital Fashion – aims to stimulate cross-regional cooperation by creating a cluster alliance within the fashion sector that promotes the necessary conditions to create a favorable ecosystem of relevant stakeholders, from a cross-sectoral perspective, that will lead to a greener, smarter and more - a competitive and innovative European fashion sector, creating new alliances, business and investment opportunities for European SMEs.
The CLOTH project will contribute to promoting the competitiveness and sustainability of the fashion sector, which addresses environmental and social impacts in line with the European Green Deal and the circular economy plan. To achieve these goals, the CLOTH project is integrated through a cross-sector partnership of 5 partners from 5 European countries (Spain, Bulgaria, Romania, Denmark and France) who work along different value chains: fashion and textiles, circular economy, creative industries and digital technologies.
