Ms Ketikidi had the opportunity to present her paper on “Sustainable Fashion and Digital Communications: A Systematic Literature Review” and share her views on this topic. Sustainability in fashion is considered to be an essential research field study worth studying for both academia and industry, as the fashion industry is claimed to be the second biggest global polluter after the oil industry.

During her presentation the researcher talked on how fashion brands are communicating their sustainable profile to consumers through social media channels. The results of this systematic literature review highlight the negative effects of “fast fashion” in an economic, social and environmental dimension and the lack of consumers’ knowledge about sustainable fashion. The researcher had the chance to meet in person the Chair and President of Global Alliance of Marketing and Management Associations (GAMMA) Prof. Eunju Ko and the Chair of the conference Prof. Benjamin Voyer.
