Susanne Kreuz from the BEST-Sabel Vocational school for design in Berlin this morning took the floor in the plenary session. She claims that the schools have an important role in promoting organic cotton. They could contribute a lot to sensitizing the fashion world from the start to the conditions of production in other parts of the world. Susanne was invited to vistit Mali, Westafrica and has established an exhange with the first designer school in Bamako, initiated by Mimi Konaté. Now Susanne would like to find producers in Germany who are interested to let collections be produced there.
