In the last few years, and particularly since the UN 2030 targets were set, the fashion industry has also had a major breakthrough on the issue of sustainability. The major fashion houses have realised how important it is for customers to wear eco-friendly clothes and accessories and have committed themselves to creating production chains that minimise their impact on the environment.
The combination of fashion and sustainability is the new frontier of fashion and fashion marketing in particular. Not only have fashion brands taken the environmental cause to heart, but they are also learning to exploit this theme to improve their image and create ad hoc branding strategies.
Green fashion is sweeping away fast fashion: is this the dawn of a new era? For some brands, yes. One example? Uniqlo has implemented its own sustainable and environmental component, emphasising that its products are oriented towards values that are far from fast fashion. But it’s not the only one: even Gucci, recently increasingly aware of the needs of the younger generations, is committed (and spreading its commitment) to the environmental cause.
During the module “Fashion and sustainability: the new frontier” we will address these topics and many others, aiming to understand the importance of the sustainability issue inthe fashion world.
