research question

In an era where fashion is one of the worlds largest and most complex industries, promoting continuous growth and passive overconsumption, how can designers contribute to the creation of a responsible fashion system?


Fundamentally, this research is about exploring the future of making clothes by redesigning the fashion system. This exploration is done within a system theory framework where designers are a key figure. System theory provides the structure to understand how designers work and fit within the larger current fashion system. Only by understanding how designers currently work, can challenges to the current system and its boundaries be undertaken in reclaiming the power of designers.
