Notion Collective is a union that gathers sustainable fashion entrepreneurs, opinion leaders, influencers for change, fashion professionals, academicians, students, and fashionistas to discuss fast fashion’s social and environmental impact; create alternative solutions for the sustainable and ethical transformation of the industry.
Based on sharing knowledge and experience with collective consciousness to increase sustainable development, social justice, and diversity of individual expression in the fashion industry, the union asks provocative questions in the field of ethics and sustainability with its core principles of awareness, education, collaboration, creative cooperation, and creating alternatives. It turns innovative conceptual discussions into permanent experiences.
Notion Collective was named after one of the eleven historical capitals of İzmir. This valley becomes the origin of sustainable fashion and textile from organic cotton fields to end sustainable products with its strong design and craftsmanship capabilities. The antic name enriches the collective with the city’s cultural heritage.
We met with the intent of creating a community for a sustainable future. We dream of the unity of people who inspire and learn from each other, create and produce together with a collective consciousness. We believe that with a strong community, we can come over the negative social and environmental impacts of the fashion industry and secure the sustainable future of the planet and our lives. On this platform, academic and industry-specific collaborations, conceptual discussions, interactive and creative workshops that enable the development of innovative and alternative solutions will be held. We will deal with current issues in many different topics such as ecology, diversity and fair trade. ,
We invite you to be a part of this transformational movement in fashion.
SHARE INTERACT CONNECT
When we are designing our activities, we wish to gather academics, industry leaders, entrepreneurs, students who want to share their knowledge in sustainable fashion areas. Redesigning the events shaped by using innovative ways, we wish to create a space for communication, and connection, and sharing knowledge.
We are aware of the fact that to achieve results which are capable of reversing the negative impacts of fashion, we need to utilize time in the most efficient way. Our events may have a common ground for future positive effects, connections, and communication.
By creating collaborations, building communities and developing networks, we believe that we may contribute as a part of fashion world, to create a better world. Therefore, we have decided to form a collective for this establishment.

We all have a thing to do to take care of and protect our planet. We
should live a life which give makes it possible that our kids and
grandchildren can survive. Our life should be the promise we give and the message that we want to transfer.
