Environmental Fashion Show Raises Awareness on Sustainable Living and Clothing Concepts
If the aim of the ECOuture environmental fashion show was to make a social impact rather than just be aesthetically pleasing then we think the students have done a great job.
The report quotes Prof. Tasha Lewis Ph.D. ’09, fiber science and apparel design stating that about 85 percent of consumed clothing would eventually end up in landfill, which, for her, “is kind of hard to hear because most of the textiles [of our clothes] are recyclable.
We at Kapdaa have been working towards tackling the growing issue of textile landfills and how to make the fashion/textile industry more sustainable. Our aim is for offcut products to replace day-to-day items made from new materials, so that we avoid using finite natural resources.
