Global Fashion Agenda facilitates knowledge sharing activities to support signatories of the 2020 Circular Fashion Commitment in defining their circular strategies and overcoming barriers. This primarily involves sharing best practices and key learnings between signatories and bringing together industry experts to explore solutions. Since circularity is still a new topic in the fashion industry, sharing experiences and tools is an important part of accelerating the transition.
During the first year of the commitment Global Fashion Agenda developed a toolbox for each of the action points which signatories could use to support their process. We're excited to say these toolboxes are now accessible for public download in order to support all fashion businesses on their transition to a circular system.
You can download each of the toolboxes below!
Circular Design Toolbox
This toolbox is designed to support fashion brands and retailers who would like to explore circular design within their company. It highlights the role design plays in creating a circular fashion system and is aimed to redefine the life cycle of garments.

Garment Collection Toolbox
This toolbox is designed to support fashion brands and retailers who would like to set up a garment collection scheme. Because no one size fits all, the toolbox is by no means a definitive manual on how to run a collection scheme but should be seen as a learning tool.

This toolbox is designed to support fashion brands and retailers who would like to explore resale strategies within their company. It highlights the role reselling plays in creating a circular fashion system and is aimed to redefine the life cycle of garments by giving them multiple lives.

Textile Recycling Toolbox
This toolbox is a learning tool designed to support fashion brands and retailers who would like to increase the share of recycled post-consumer textile fibres in their production.
