Francois Souchet

Lead, Make Fashion Circular

Role at the Foundation

Francois joined the Ellen MacArthur Foundation in 2016 to work with its Global Partners including Google and H&M, to help drive circular economy innovation. In 2018, following the launch of the report ‘A New Textiles Economy: Redesigning fashion’s future’, Francois moved to lead Make Fashion Circular, shaping the programme to be a truly disruptive force within the industry.

Having studied in Paris and Melbourne and working internationally, he now finds himself based in the UK leading a team dedicated to redesigning the fashion industry, based on circular economy principles. This new approach ensures that clothes are made from safe and renewable materials, new business models increase their use and old clothes are turned into new.
