Trends, they come and they go, often in a blink of an eye. With the rise of fast fashion, being of the moment, has never been more accessible and possible. Fast fashion refers to the lifecycle of clothing; clothes are made cheaply and intended for short term use. While fast fashion can be easy on our wallets, the cost of quick turnaround and production, comes at a high cost. Fast fashion negatively affects our environment, the workers who produce the clothing, and the consumers who purchase.
As the effects of fast fashion become more pronounced, slow and sustainable fashion are emerging as a new trend - rooted in mindfulness and responsibility.
In this exciting class Sarah Parlow, a fashionista and stylist to the stars, will speak to sustainability. While working in fashion, Sarah witnessed the devastating effects mass production has on the environment and the exploitative labor practices of the fashion industry. Most concerning was the increase in synthetic materials, the amount of waste generated from packaging and the disposability of everything being consumed. After much research, her concern grew into a simple conviction that we as consumers can drive change across a products life cycle.
This workshop will address the following questions:
What is Sustainability?
What is Transparency?
What is Circular Economy?
How can Technology and Innovation help the fashion industry?
