Why Teach Sustainable Fashion?

The fashion industry has changed dramatically in the last decade, and the whole sector is now characterised by critical issues and challenging trade-offs, including question marks around its sustainability.

Fashion is one of the most polluting industries that generates a substantial environmental and social impact.

In order to deal with the interdependent social, cultural, ecological and financial issues within the fashion industry, education at all levels needs to play a key role in encouraging urgent change.

It is vitally important to integrate responsible fashion with education, so that greater awareness can lead to collaboration, innovation and coordination at all levels.

"We believe that...

education for sustainability is a catalyst for change in societies, cultures, and economies. We explore the why, what, how, and with whom of creative education as sustainability in action."
