Mrs. Kim Poldner

Before she embarked on an academic career, Kim Poldner was founder of the first eco fashion store in The Netherlands in 2005 and initiator of online platform Eco Fashion World. Her green wardrobe, including her up-cycled wedding dress, was exhibited during the exhibition Wear I Am in 2017. She now is Professor Circular Business at The Hague University of Applied Sciences and Wageningen University & Research (WUR), The Netherlands where she leads the Circular Fashion Lab. Through bringing together scientists and designers, Circular Fashion @WUR contributes to the creation of new ‘categories’ of materials previously unknown in the fashion industry, disruptive technologies that re-define textile supply-chains and inspired processes of organizing that turn competitors into comparables.
