Re-Modelling Fashion brings together leading specialist researchers from diverse disciplinary perspectives (design for sustainability at Centre for Sustainable Fashion, LCF, UAL and industrial sustainability at Cambridge University) and industry practitioners (fashion design, production, and retail at ASOS) to extend fashion’s value in ecological, social and economic terms.
Through engaging in a transformation design process, the team are co-creating products, services, and business model innovation, proposing vital changes in and of the fashion system. By exploring challenges and opportunities at large and small-scale levels, the research is co-informed and hence findings will inform change across levels within the system. The project will generate insights for applicability in research, teaching, and fashion industry practice.
The project forms part of the wider Business of Fashion Textiles Technology project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
