Organizer Centre for Sustainable Fashion (CSF)

Organizer of Better Lives: Fostering Sustainable Practices in Small Fashion Businesses

We are Centre for Sustainable Fashion (CSF), a University of the Arts London research, education and knowledge exchange centre.

Based at London College of Fashion (LCF), we provoke, challenge, and question the status quo in fashion; contributing to a system that recognises its ecological context and honours equity. We shape and contribute to Fashion Design for Sustainability as a field of study, industry, and education practices. We engage in transformation design, cross-referencing fashion’s ecological, social, economic, and cultural agendas.

We take a pluralistic, systemic approach, collaborating with universities, businesses, and other organisations around the world.

–––––––––

Established in 2008 by Dilys Williams, actively supported by other key change-makers from fashion and beyond, CSF’s starting point was human and ecological resilience as a lens for design in fashion’s artistic and business practices. We have grown to be a diverse community of world leading researchers, designers, educators and communicators with an extensive network that crosses disciplines, generations, cultures and locations, enabling us to:

Create internationally acclaimed research
Set agendas in government, business, and public arenas
Pioneer world relevant curriculum

Fashion shapes and reflects society and communities, their culture and diversity, it is both personal and ubiquitous, an every day phenomenon. CSF was devised to question and challenge reactionary fashion cultures, which reflect and re-enforce patterns of excessive consumption and disconnection, to expand fashion’s ability to connect, delight and identify individual and collective values.
