The ‘knowledge space’, Espaço Conhecer, offers lectures and workshops covering an array of topics, such as the value chain of fashion development, mindful consumption, and other behavioral and cultural topics that may interest both fashion industry professionals and the general public. Illuminating discussions are also held in this space, exploring potential avenues for cementing circularity in the fashion industry.
Espaço Amazônia, a newer and considerably smaller program, is entirely focused on exhibiting clothing and accessories from the Amazon. These include fabrics made from vegetable fibers that are planted along the Amazonian river, generating an income for the local communities. Relevant lectures are also held in this space, where the audience can learn about sustainable sourcing that supports indegenous communities.
Espaço Fornecer presents the fabric suppliers, services that include; receiving and further reselling scraps and leftover fabric rolls, and other existing projects in the fashion industry that offer more sustainable solutions for the fashion production chain.
Espaço Beleza, the ‘beauty space’, is a market selling only natural, organic and vegan cosmetics, whilst Mercado Eco, ‘eco market’, sells clothes from slow fashion brands. In addition to these various divisions, BEFW has been organizing roundtables between consultants, entrepreneurs and buyers to create new partnerships as part of its recent events.
