While the environmental and social impacts of the global fashion industry are widely discussed today, from a student or a designer's perspective it can be difficult to know where to begin to improve a garment and where to find help, assistance and guidance on designing sustainable fashion products. Sustainable Fashionbegins with a reflection on the current fashion design process and examines the problems and issues associated with the life cycle of a garment, and the ways in which the designer can assess and evaluate the environmental and social impacts at the design stage. It subsequently presents a set of sustainable strategies that can be applied at each key phase in the life cycle of a garment, with a number of strategies explored in more detail and supported by case studies and interviews with designers working in the industry. Rich in visuals, diagrams and examples of sustainable fashion from designers and experts around the world including Vivienne Westwood, Ada Zanditon, Linda Loudermilk, and People Tree this book presents an inspiring yet practical model for students and fashion designers to use within the studio environment.
