    Worn Again will be part of the Conscious Fashion Campaign billboard showcase in Times Square New York Fashion Week, from February 11-16, 2022. Cyndi Rhoades, founder of Worn Again, has been named an honouree of the initiative of the Fashion Impact Fund in collaboration with the United Nations (UN) Office for Partnerships and the PVBLIC Foundation.

    The achievement further emphasises the company’s role in textile recycling technology and its support for the sustainable fashion industry using advanced polymer processing technologies. The Conscious Fashion Campaign spotlights fashion-focused female entrepreneurs that are leading the industry towards an inclusive and responsible future with their businesses. The initiative aims to enhance their global visibility to educate, inform and inspire communities, Worn Again said in a press release.

    Rhoades has been selected as one of top ten most influential social entrepreneurs that will appear on the iconic seven-story-high Nasdaq billboard during New York Fashion Week. This is in recognition of Rhoades and the company’s continued commitment to driving social and environmental changes in the industry. More precisely, this recycling technology company is developing a holistic framework for a circular economy of textiles, where fibre blends are given a second life as high-quality, virgin-like materials.

I am excited for Cyndi and for Worn Again’s bright future as we work towards realising circularity in the fashion and textile industry,” Erik Koep, CEO of Worn Again said.

    “I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to Cyndi for being selected as one of the top ten female entrepreneurs by the Conscious Fashion Campaign.
