BIARRITZ GOOD FASHION 2022 - 20 OCTOBRE
The BALI Chair is renewing its partnership with Paris Good Fashion to organise the BIARRITZ GOOD FASHION event on 20 October.
We look forward to seeing you on the ESTIA engineering school campus for this high point of circular, agile and transparent fashion, which welcomes more than a hundred professionals each year.
This year, the event is opening up to the international scene by welcoming European speakers and audiences. A translation system in French and English will be set up (except for workshops).
9H30 : LAUNCH OF THE DAY
Chloé Salmon-Legagneur and Isabelle Lefort will present the programme of the event and share their views on the latest initiatives for a positive transformation of the fashion and textile industry.
10H00 : ROUND TABLE - CLOSED-LOOP FASHION IN 2030: FANTASY OR REALITY?
Today, 13% of the materials used by the fashion industry are recycled, and only 1% of these fibres become clothing again, in a closed loop. The recycling of textiles comes up against logistical, technical and economic barriers, which often lead to a cascaded recycling into lower-value applications (insulation, padding, etc.). However, closing the material loop would allow significant progress towards sustainable fashion.
What innovations are helping to meet this challenge? For what environmental benefits? How will fashion brands be able to integrate them? What is the timeframe and financial effort required?
These questions will be discussed during a round table with project leaders and brands involved in circular fashion:
11H00 : ROUND TABLE - WHAT ARE THE NEW MODELS TO ALIGN VALUE CREATION AND SOBRIETY?
More than 100 billion items of clothing are sold each year worldwide. This figure doubled between 2000 and 2014 and this explosion has made the textile industry one of the most polluting ones.
If technical innovation is a necessity to place the fashion industry in a circular economy, an economic paradigm shift seems also inevitable in the face of the scale of the challenges. .
What are the ways out of the conventional volume logic? In other words, how can we create value without putting more and more products on the market? What new opportunities does this transformation promise for the sector? What lessons can we learn from the experience of pioneers?
These issues will be discussed in a round table with companies that are exploring these new models.
12H00 : NETWORKING LUNCH
14H00 - 16H00 : CONFERENCE SESSION (open to all)
FOCUS ON TWO EUROPEAN PROJECTS
14H00 : FUTURES OF FASHION-TECH ALLIANCE
FTalliance is a three-year (2020 –2022) Knowledge Alliance Project co-founded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union aimed to facilitate the exchange and flow of knowledge within the Fashion-Tech sector to boost students’ employability and innovation potential.
By combining the technological, creative, and market leadership of companies with universities, FTalliance initiated a series of knowledge exchange activities to develop an interdisciplinary Fashion-Tech curriculum that integrates fashion, design, and engineering with the challenges of the industry. Furthermore, it has formulated and tested cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary educational strategies to train future fashion-tech professionals with the necessary skills and know-how to ensure continuous innovation in the European Fashion-Tech sector. Which educational experiences in the Fashion-Tech sector can result from the collaboration between universities and companies? How can talented students be integrated into the innovation activities of companies? What are the competencies of future fashion-tech professionals? What are the future recruitment strategies of fashion-tech companies?
The round table will present the achieved results and future developments of the alliance, opening the dialogue to the participation of the audience.

15H00 : EUROPEAN SCIRT PROGRAM PRESENTATION
The SCIRT (System Circularity & Innovative Recycling of Textiles) project aims to demonstrate a Textile-to-Textile recycling system for end-of-life garments, involving stakeholders along the value chain and focusing on the recycling of natural fibres, synthetic fibres and fibre blends. What are the objectives and expected results of this project?
Coordinated by VITO, an independent Flemish research organisation in the field of clean technologies and sustainable development, SCIRT is a three-year project funded by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 programme and involves 18 partners from five different European countries.
14H00 - 16H00 : WORKSHOPS SESSION (Limited places - Participation 40€)
4 WORKSHOPS TO SELECT FROM
The members of the BALI Chair propose exchanges in small groups (20 people) to share the work carried out during the year and to co-construct together solutions for sustainable fashion.
WORKSHOP 1 - Towards a standard of good practice for textile collection in shops

Sustainable Development Project Manager, DECATHLON
The DECATHLON Group will present a summary of the comparative study of in-store collection methods carried out during the year. Based on these initial conclusions, a co-construction workshop will be offered to question the role of retail stakeholders in the collection of end-of-life products and to develop a standard of good practices for textile collection in shops.
WORKSHOP 2 - Come and test the recyclability of your product!
Animated by Ximun Curutchet
PhD candidate, GROUPE ERAM
The ERAM Group will share the recyclability indicator co-constructed with the members of the working group during the year and will propose you to apply it on a product of your own range.
WORKSHOP 3 - What are the conditions for a successful on-demand manufacturing project?
Animated by Sabrina Champault
Category leader, PETIT BATEAU
Lean manufacturing, agile manufacturing, on-request manufacturing: PETIT BATEAU will share its vision of these levers for a more sustainable fashion, and of the obstacles to their implementation. This workshop will also be an opportunity to participate in a collective brainstorming to identify the key success factors of an on-demand manufacturing project.
WORKSHOP 4 - Let's design a Circular Product Passport!
