The future-thinking designer Ina Budde founded circular.fashion - a sustainable consultancy offering Design and System Innovation for a circular future of fashion. The Circular Design Platform supports fashion brands to design circular and sustainable products in a lean and efficient process, with access to an extensive material database. The circular.fashion system interconnects all actors within the value chain by giving each garment an identification, making sure that every step of a garment’s life cycle positively influences circular systems of fashion - so that the products of today become the resources of tomorrow.
Additional to her work with circular.fashion, Ina is a lecturer and workshop instructor for sustainable design at several international universities such as RMIT Melbourne, KEA Copenhagen, RCA London, HAW Hamburg, ESMOD and currently AMD Berlin.
