WWD Digital Daily - - In Focus: Business Insights - BY WWD STAFF

Art in­stal­la­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties are de­signed to re­it­er­ate sus­tain­abil­ity and in­no­va­tion.

ReMode has lined up sev­eral in­ter­ac­tive and im­mer­sive ex­pe­ri­ences to en­gage at­ten­dees dur­ing its in­au­gu­ral event set for Nov. 13 and 14 at the

Los An­ge­les Con­ven­tion Cen­ter in Down­town Los An­ge­les.

The show, which or­ga­niz­ers de­scribe as an event for “dis­rup­tive and sus­tain­able fash­ion,” is of­fer­ing “unique spa­ces where at­ten­dees can gather, cre­ate, shop and ex­plore the fu­ture role of fash­ion.” ReMode founders said at­ten­dees “will be able to gather in these spa­ces to share ideas, re­flect and con­sider their vi­sion of the fu­ture of fash­ion, while also hav­ing fun. Our holis­tic con­fer­ence pro­gram­ming in­cludes not just work­shops, key­notes and panel ses­sions, but also art, cre­ative spa­ces, con­cept shops and ar­eas that show­case the lat­est in­no­va­tions in ma­te­ri­als and tech­nol­ogy.”

The in­ter­ac­tive and experiential pro­grams at ReMode will in­clude “X-Ray Fash­ion,” which is a “mul­ti­sen­sory, vir­tual-re­al­ity ex­pe­ri­ence” where par­tic­i­pants are “face-to-face with the en­vi­ron­men­tal and hu­man im­pacts of the fash­ion in­dus­try.” The aim is to ex­plore

“all stages of ap­parel pro­duc­tion, man­u­fac­tur­ing and con­sump­tion.” Francesco Car­rozzini is serv­ing as the di­rec­tor of this “im­mer­sive cine­matic ex­pe­ri­ence,” which or­ga­niz­ers said is de­signed to mo­ti­vate “a car­bon­neu­tral, eco-friendly and so­cially re­spon­si­ble ap­proach to fash­ion.”

There will also be a Le Souk Sus­tain­able In­no­va­tion Pav­il­ion, show­cas­ing trends in ma­te­rial in­no­va­tion and the next gen­er­a­tion of de­sign­ers “com­mit­ted to sus­tain­abil­ity as well as in­no­va­tive tex­tiles and ma­te­ri­als from mills and tan­ner­ies around the world.”

Habit Habita­cle is an art in­stal­la­tion de­signed by François Gir­baud that ex­plores the “fu­ture of cloth­ing, its role within so­ci­ety, and a vi­sion for its tech­ni­cal and func­tional evo­lu­tion.” Or­ga­niz­ers said Gir­baud’s ap­proach “of­fers a vi­sion of what de­sign and man­u­fac­tur­ing can be, high­light­ing the lat­est de­vel­op­ments in ma­te­ri­als and tech­nolo­gies that re­duce re­source us­age and waste.”

There will also be a Global Fash­ion Ex­change cloth­ing swap, and an eth­i­cal “con­cept shopt” of sus­tain­able fash­ion. The U.N.’s Con­scious Fash­ion Cam­paign will also be pro­moted.
