In the fifth and final episode of our fashion-focused series, we're looking at how to apply circular design to fashion.
Design will shape the fashion industry’s transformation to a circular economy. More than 80% of all environmental impacts from products are determined at the design stage. While traditional design focuses on considering and meeting the needs of the end user, circular design takes a much broader perspective, considering not only the user but the system within which the design will exist.
To achieve a transition to a circular fashion industry requires unprecedented collaboration. In this episode, contributors to the Foundation’s upcoming Circular Design Guide for Fashion book join us to explore what circular design means for the fashion industry.
