Description

The fashion industry has a choice. There are mass amounts of crap filling our landfills, polluting our water and people barely compensated for their work. Resonance is the opposite of that. We are creating and providing entrepreneurial opportunities for designers to DO GOOD and DO WELL. Taking raw materials to a garment that you wear on your back through a process that is optimized around people and our planet while creating economic value, our mission is vital in order for the industry, the planet, our creators, and our customers to flourish. Resonance chairman and co-founder Lawrence Lenihan, JCRT designers Jeffrey Costello & Robert Tagliapietra and Daniel Vosovic of THE KIT will give a sneak peak of the technology, discuss the future of fashion creation for designers and explain why a sustainable future exists today.

Wellness note: This event will follow CDC guidance regarding masks and audience capacity numbers. All attendees must show fully vaccinated status on a CDC recognized vaccination card for entry.
