How Fashion is Failing Us

April 24 @ 7:00 pm UTC-5

Presenter: Mila de Souza, SPL Fellow

In the past, fashion has been aligned with fashion shows and trends only, but we are now relating fashion to bigger theoretical questions. Some of these questions include: Are American companies who buy from factories in other countries responsible for the human rights violations committed in those factories? What does the fashion industrial complex owe to the environment? These questions have long and complex answers. Welcome to my major! While the fashion industry affects society in a range of ways, for this project, I have focused on intersectional sustainability. Intersectional sustainability is 3-pronged: social, environmental and economic. Unfortunately, fashion has negatively affected all 3 of those prongs in society. Even companies that claim to be sustainable are rarely intersectional. With this project, I have created and highlighted intersectionally sustainable pieces. This is achieved through made and found clothing. These pieces will be displayed during a virtual fashion show held on zoom.
