This event takes you straight into the depths of biochemistry and unconscious group behaviours to create a new conversation on Fashion. Learn how polymers and additives in clothing affect you and the envrionment; learn how group psychology elucidates societal hunger for instant consumer fashion on a global scale and discover how you may intervene and redirect sustainable thinking into your design choices.
This is a unique opportunity to learn about the dark side of fashion. There are hundreds of untold versions of what fashion consumerism is, how it affects biological systems and why we are susceptible to it.
With this knowledge and insight you can rewrite the history of fashion consumption for yourself, clients, students, retailers and brands.
Dr Emma Neuberg, the lecturer, keeps it accessible and actionable.
