Better Lives is a term we use to describe the work we do at LCF that uses fashion, as a discipline, to drive change, build a sustainable future and improve the way we live. This encompasses research and projects across all levels (PhD, MA and BA), and areas of the college’s portfolio including fashion design, media and communication, business, science and technology.
Centre for Sustainable Fashion’s work explores vital elements of Better Lives, and as part of this initiative CSF will host the 2018 Better Lives Lecture Series. Focused on Past, Present and Future the series will celebrate and reflect on the contribution our students make to Better Lives.
To encourage innovation, over the last five years the Better Lives Awards for MA students have been sponsored by Procter and Gamble, personified by Professor Paul Matts, who has worked with the LCF’s Cosmetic Science courses for many years. This award follows the previous Thinking Ahead competition, sponsored by Unilever and established with Dr Phil Sams.
The first event in the 2018 Better Lives lecture series will present the work of previous recipients of the P&G Better Lives Masters Awards, along with completed PhD research that embodies the Better Lives ethos.
How do you think fashion can contribute to better lives? A panel and audience discussion will follow the presentations. Come and take part!
