About the Film
New technologies, sustainability concerns and innovative minds are transforming our clothes. The Next Black documentary film introduces the designers, innovators and leaders who are shaping the future of clothing. These creative people from around the globe are probing beyond what we currently wearing to explore how we produce clothes, how we interact with them, and how we care for them. Each brings a fresh perspective on the future of the clothing industry -and all of them are using their passions to fuel change. This is not a film about what’s new, it’s about what’s next.
