Sustainable fashion is a popular industry slogan used by many brands to describe their ethical and/or green approach to the industry. What does sustainable fashion mean? What are the challenges that designers face in order to define their business as sustainable? Issues exist on both the macro and micro level. Long term economic viability is connected to a sustainable social and environmental culture. Designers must factor in sustainability to their available resources, production and supply lines while also feeding their creative process. We will examine all of these overlapping factors in order to better understand the sustainable fashion revolution.
