Centre for Sustainable Fashion: ‘Positive change is within our grasp’

I highly recommend reading this article which gets to the heart and soul of where fashion is, and where it needs to be. Written by Dilys Williams​, director of the Centre for Sustainable Fashion at London College of Fashion UAL

‘Fashion can be an incredible means for us to make connections – between nature and pleasure, self and others, giving and receiving. It is a spectacle of our times and a vital part of how we each present ourselves and sometimes hide ourselves away. It can tell stories, honour people and places, but it can also be lethal and exploitative both to the people that work for it and the environment, which sustains it. Fashion has long since broken and discarded the plumb line that reaches back through its soil.’
