The Future Generation of Fashion: How Higher Education Contextualises Sustainability as a Key Design Tool

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Sustainability in fashion has often been approached with caution, leading many to question the practical application of a responsible system within the second most polluting industry in the world. A series of complex challenges currently face the integration of these responsible ideals within the value chain, with practitioners, educators, and students needing to work collectively to ensure the fashion industry is future proof. These key stakeholders need to not only possess the correct knowledge, but also be equipped with the correct creative skills. A human-centric approach to design education can help adapt the current fashion curricula, overcoming many highlighted barriers in creating the future generation of informed and confident industry professionals.
