Sustainability begins in the design process. Resources are conserved, for example, when the design of a collection is based on available materials. Made-to-measure and made-to-order reduce inventories to a minimum. And approaches such as inclusive and adaptive fashion create more sustainable alternatives for customer groups that still often have to resort to fast fashion due to a lack of supply. The talk will bring clarity to additional aspects of sustainability that go beyond common certifications and illuminate the significant role of the design process.
