Fashioning Now: changing the way we make and use clothes

The Fashioning Now project aimed to investigate the way in which clothing is produced, used and discarded. The project outcomes included a set of educational activities and resources that comprised of an exhibition, a symposium, a project website, and a book, which featured innovative research projects from Australian and international scholars and practitioners. Through these activities Fashioning Now proposed to highlight the diverse range of sustainable solutions currently being explored by researchers, designers and manufacturers, while predicting possible scenarios for a future fashion industry.

Project led by: Alison Gwilt and Timo Rissanen

This project has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust. Fashioning Now is also supported by the University of Technology, Sydney, and UTS Gallery.
