Fashioning Now, 2009

The Fashioning Now project investigated the ways in which clothing is produced, used and discarded. The project outcomes included a set of educational activities and resources that comprised of an exhibition, a symposium, a project website and a book, which featured innovative research projects from Australian and international scholars and practitioners. Through these activities Fashioning Now proposed to highlight the diverse range of sustainable solutions currently being explored by researchers, designers and manufacturers, while predicting possible scenarios for a future fashion industry.

The book, Shaping Sustainable Fashion, is available from Routledge.

Project led by Alison Gwilt and Timo Rissanen.
