Fashion Revolution USA is proud to support and partner with Sustainable Fashion Week and its founders, Rick Davy and Bridgett Artise. It is a free, six-day virtual event showcasing collections from emerging sustainable designers, established sustainable designers, and vintage collectors.

Unlike your typical fashion week, this platform will host a digital sustainable product lounge, share updates from leading sustainable fashion experts, and most importantly, display a sustainable fashionexhibit offering visuals on the industry and movement at large.
