      Climate College Tour: Ronald van der Kemp

      Climate College Tour - Ronald van der Kemp Wednesday February 13th - 18:00 - The Student Hotel Amsterdam City How old is your winter coat? And when did you last buy new clothes - also last month during the winter sale? The fashion industry is known as one of the dirtiest industries worldwide. Not only because of labour circumstances - think of the sweatshops - but also because of the environmental impact. In our climate college series we simply cannot skip this industry. That is why we have invited international couturier and fashion designer Ronald van der Kemp to be our next guest! Ronald van der Kemp has been in the fashion industry for many years. Nowadays he is running his own fashion label RvdK - also known as the world’s first sustainable couture label. Stars like Doutzen Kroes and Kate Moss are wearing his unique items made of leftovers. Also Sungevity’s founder Roebyem Anders has a very special dress made by Ronald: a dress with a solar panel. With his brand Ronald is on a mission to show the world that ethical fashion can be glamorous and exciting, injecting high fashion with a feeling of nostalgia and a longing for the heydays of haute couture. Moderater Peter Melis will interview Ronald about his thoughts on the fashion industry, why he choose for a different approach, how designers can influence the mass and many more! Like you are used to with Climate College Tour you don’t need to pay for your entrance, but this time we thought it would be a cool idea if everyone can bring an old piece of clothing. Afterwards, during the drinks, we will turn the Student Hotel into a second hand shop where you can shop your ‘new’ clothes for free!
