Hello Everyone, I am Juana Camacho from Colombia and I am the founder of www.ecochicestiloconsentido.com, a project that aims to bring sustainability into fashion design and education by sharing information, developing events and helping brands and students understand what this means for their work.
We were born in 2007 when we hosted our first Trueque Ecochic, a swishing event targeted to young fashionistas in Bogota. Since then we have had over 30 events, including fashion shows, conferences, concerts and the Trueques. We now want to become a consulting and training company to support students, brands and companies that want to truly commit to sustainability in this sector.
Diseño Sostenible (Sustainable Design)
It is always a pleasure to say hello to you all; I would like to share with you another entrepreneurship initiative I recently got into which, by the way, is at your service.
We are based in Bogotá (Colombia), and we offer training services, consulting and product design from the perspective of sustainability.
We also collaborate in implementing processes and methodologies integrating sustainable design in business, entrepreneurship and academics projects through products and services based on knowledge, creativity, innovation and participation.
We will be very happy to assist you in any Sustainable Design matter.
