DuPont hosts sustainable fashion show


In San Francisco, DuPont hosted a fashion show to showcase the versatility of its Sorona biobased fibers to the industry’s major brands, including Banana Republic, as well as media and activist groups.

Held September 11 on Angel Island, the event included locally sourced food, guest speakers from the Marine Mammal Center, and models wearing fashion made with Sorona.

“We know that thoughtful discussion and meaningful collaboration–even across industries–drives real change. With this in mind, the Sorona brand team brought together experts from the slow food and slow fashion movements to discuss how our industries can learn from each other and become more sustainable,” said Renee Henze, Global Marketing Director for DuPont Biomaterials. “By consuming food that is good for people and the planet, and manufacturing, selling and buying clothing that is sustainably sourced, durable and fashionable, we all can work together to promote and drive a more circular economy.”
