Fashioning Now



The ‘Fashioning Now’ project explored the theoretical and practical issues concerned with fashion sustainability and the problem of textile waste, which is created during the manufacture and use of fashion clothing. The main project activity centred on an exhibition, staged in Sydney and Perth, which highlighted the ways textile waste could be avoided and reduced. This was supported with a public program of activities over eighteen months, including a symposium and website. A publication emerged from the body of work, ‘Shaping Sustainable Fashion’ (Gwilt & Rissanen 2011)  ​
