WHAT WE DO

Catalyst | Inspiring Future Fashion is a pro-purpose association and inclusive platform aiming to share current developments, enable collaboration and maximise impact.

Since our founding in January 2019 our community has grown significantly, working within and supporting the Portuguese fashion industry towards Circularity & Sustainability.

Together we develop partnerships & projects, enabling new business opportunities and increasing the visibility of our community members.

Sustainability can be an overwhelming challenge to embrace regarding Fashion. Thus we curate and host public events to share the experience and expertise of our community, in order to raise awareness of the current state of the national Sustainable Fashion industry and the innovative solutions improving our environmental impact.
