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.
