Sustainable Fashion

Fashion & Sustainability

Fashion is a global creative industry worth over USD1000 billion annually, but many of the practices driving growth in the industry are both unsustainable and unethical. The rise of globalised fast fashion, wasteful consumption practices and unethical supply chains lead many to argue that idea of sustainable fashion is impossible.

At QUT Fashion we are committed to training our graduates to negotiate this complex field across both questions of theory and practice. This entails learning about the material aspects of garment production, as well as understanding how systems based approaches such as the ‘cradle-to-cradle’ paradigm might lead to more sustainable practices.
