Sustainable Fashion

Spring 2021: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:00-10:15 am 
Creative Commons, Room 103 and ASU Sync

Will fashion ever be good for the world?


What is fashion’s environmental impact?


What is the social impact of fast fashion?


How can we consume more sustainably?


Fashion is the world’s second most polluting industry.

It operates on a model at the heart of a widespread humanitarian crisis: incalculable environmental damage & inhumane labor practices. Through the investigation of case studies, current industry journals, webinars, and discussions with industry experts and workers, we will propose solutions for creating more sustainable and equitable fashion supply chains and consumer practices. Working alongside librarians, faculty, and community leaders, students will determine ways to educate and inspire action among the global public through messaging and other interactive, creative methods.


  • Collaborators TBA

Impact Outcomes

Student teams will create compelling narratives to advance sustainable fashion practices among consumers as part of an interactive installation to engage consumers with their clothing & the values they ascribe to it.
