Join our interactive workshop exploring how a textile circular economy can serve our wellbeing, while also saving the planet.
More and more people care about the ethics of fashion and saving the planet through responsible consumption. However, we also care about how clothes make us look and feel, and what they are costing us. How do all these considerations about our and the planet’s wellbeing relate? Do we have the knowledge and opportunities required to serve all these needs? What can the psychology of fashion, novel technologies of co-design, smart clothes and the sustainable brain teach us?
