Sustainable Fashion Practice

Course Content

The fashion industry is the second largest polluter of the planet, which means designers play a vital part in ensuring the future sustainability of both the industry and the environment. Recycling, utilising technologies and ensuring quality are all vital components of progressive and sustainable fashion practice. This course will guide students through the production of a sustainable fashion garment or accessory, from concept, to development, manufacture and production of the finished piece, all the while focussing on sustainability at each stage of the process. Guidance will allow students to build a greater understanding of the fashion design process and embedding sustainability in everything they do. 

Entry Requirements

A detailed list will be provided to students prior to the start of the course. This will include items such as a sketchbook, basic art supplies and general textiles equipment for cutting, sewing, etc. Students will also need to source their own materials for use in the construction of the garment. Guidance will be provided on this.
