Each year we have honored the people who have inspired us at the BF+DA Positive Impact Awards, shining a spotlight on the people and brands that are advancing sustainability, ethical production and preserving heritage and craft and developing new technologies. The event attracts over 500 industry professionals, educators, journalists and entrepreneurs who come together in the dynamic atmosphere that is uniquely the BF+DA.

Our Venture Fellows transform their studios into pop-up shops, the production lab is in full swing, the sustainability lab showcases new materials and the technology.LAB will unveil new research in the design and manufacturing of smart garments and functional fabrics.
