Couture Technologies’ CEO Deanna Meador presented tonight alongside BBMS Founder Maria Silver and OnPoint Manufacturing’s President David Prentice to a sold-out crowd during Nashville’s Design Week’s showcase Sustainability in Fashion: Challenges and Proposed Solutions.
As environmental impacts in the fashion industry increase exponentially each year, sustainable strategies are not just a trend and competitive edge, but a business imperative.

And if you’re a designer or company just now learning about sustainability- where do you start?
