What Is Sustainable Fashion?
Sustainable fashion is a fundamental and structured movement designed to incite change and “smart thinking” around the ways we approach processes in fashion production. The concept of sustainable fashion does not only focus on the types of textiles, chemicals or products used in the creation of fashion items but rather it is a process of social engineering the way consumers think about fashion and the ecosystem of fashion. It also bears significant impact as it inevitably intertwines and results in the dealing with other co-dependent industries, business and financial stakeholders. Sustainable fashion affects all of us as current and future inhabitants of the earth. It should be fostered among all of us as responsible guardians and citizens and thus it is our duty to implement simple systems that can slowly but steadily result in non-pollution of the environment. It can be a simple tactic as replacing one fibre or material type for one that is less environmentally detrimental or recycling materials. Other terms for sustainable fashion are Eco-fashion and ethical fashion. We explored some of the impacts of harmful processes within the fashion industry in several past publications. Some of these exposed the abhorrent practices of child labour and complete destruction of viable communities.
