Vera de Pont
Founder, Fashion of Future
Vera de Pont is researching on-demand fashion (items), based on her overarching vision to prevent waste materials immediately at the start of the production line. She aims for modular and locally produced footwear and garments that incorporate the consumer as a maker. Her projects investigate the role of technology within local fashion production and co-creation in order to analyse the benefits this may offer to create a more collaborative and environmentally, socially and economically sustainable fashion system. Vera graduated Cum Laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven, followed by a master’s degree in Sustainable Fashion at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam.
