When Centre for Sustainable Fashion set out in 2008, we convened fashion system actors together to co-sense what was happening and what needed to be done. A gap in fashion and sustainability research, education and industry practice became clear.
In 2018, as we mark our ten year anniversary and Centre for Sustainable Fashion proudly announced it would be hosting the conference ‘What’s Going On? A Discourse on Fashion, Design and Sustainability’, exploring the dynamics, challenges and propositions of fashion and sustainability through the lens of design thinking and practice. The conference was the 2018 edition of the Global Fashion Conference, and took place at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London on the 31 October and 1 November 2018.
Through two days of listening, discussing, watching and debating, we explored the dynamics, challenges and propositions of fashion and sustainability. The diversity of our assembled perspectives proved an exciting exploration, through the guiding themes of Power, Nature, Culture and Society.
