stands for Design and System Innovation for a circular future of fashion. We will launch an innovative solution to indeed close the loop of textiles and to realize a cradle to cradle inspired circular economy:
The platform will interconnect future leading material developers, circular design, circular retail models and closed loop recycling technologies — For transparency and flow of information between all actors involved.
Collaboratively we will co-create circular products with future thinking brands and establish the circular infrastructures between all participants to keep the products in the loop while generating advantages for everyone involved.

Products perfectly designed for a cradle to cradle inspired circular economy. Designed right from the beginning for reuse and valuable closed loop recycling.
The EXTENDED CLOSED LOOP model will create a completely new circular industry structure for the created products. By extending their life span through reuse and closing the loop through valuable recycling, we will use their created infinite value to full capacity.
My passion about design is to create elaborate products that have meaning, a long and effective life and an endless value.
— INA BUDDE, MA SUSTAINABILITY IN FASHION
The future-thinking fashion designer Ina Budde realizes Design and System Innovation for a circular future of fashion. She conceptualized the EXTENDED CLOSED LOOP model to provoke a shift of the current industry structure in order to build an intelligent and healthy circular system.
During her studies of fashion design at HAW Hamburg she created numerous award winning collections with different sustainable approaches and developed a focus on circular design strategies. She won a scholarship to complete the MA Programme ‘Sustainability in Fashion’ at ESMOD Berlin while developing sustainable collections for innovative labels and inventing the EXTENDED CLOSED LOOP model — a system for a circular industry structure that has been selected as one of the innovations of LAUNCH Nordic 2014 and received the NEXT ECONOMY AWARD 2015. Her first circular collection FUTURE PROOF for the label Acronym followed this model and won the lavera Green Fashion award 2015. Besides further developing the EXTENDED CLOSED LOOP model she gives workshops and lectures on ‘FUTURE DESIGN CONCEPTS — sustainable design strategies in fashion’ at several universities. Ina Budde is founding member of the global Open Source Circular Economy association and co-initiated in this frame the first Circular Textile Challenge Berlin.
