Opportunity for Annick Jehanne, co-founder of Fashion Green Hub, to receive the Legion of Honor award accepted on behalf of her association.
A manager who looks ahead to the future of the association and whose goal is to include the fashion and textile industry in a rapid and sustainable transition. After Hauts-de-France and Greater Paris, the association established its Lyon branch at the beginning of the year, perhaps opening another branch in the Pays de la Loire soon after: Nantes hosts the first Green Fashion Days on 16 and 17 November made.
“We are quietly considering a split, since it is the regional communities that decided to create a Fertile Plateau when they thought it would be beneficial for the regional sector,” explains Annick Jehanne. “Our regional communities are forming and growing. “The region seems to us to be the ideal scale for businesses, researchers, communities and others to meet, discuss, work together and imagine new things.”
The efficient platform, with Thomas Ebélé (Sloweare) as president and Julie Elland-Goldsmith as vice-president and treasurer, takes the form of a large open space to which meeting rooms have been added. One of its key roles will be professional and inclusive education, especially in the context of professional integration.
For this purpose, the Fablab area offers sewing machines, overlock machines, straight stitch machines, coating machines, textile printers or pressure regulators. A joint workshop that will host training in groups of eight people.
A material library of local idle stocks is also available on the site: Fashion Green Hub Grand Paris can count on a network of 225 Ile-de-France members. Added to this is the L’Unique Façon design office, which has the capacity to develop eco-design and micromanufactured products.
The platform also has private meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 15 employees and can be converted into a photography studio when necessary. We should not forget the co-working area, where “productive cafes” will be organized, aiming to encourage exchange between professionals.
This third location in the Île-de-France region has benefited in particular from the support of the City of Paris and the Île-de-France Region in its development. But also Ademe (ecological transition agency) and ANCT (national agency for regional adaptation).
