Beskrivelse

Sustainable fashion has been the subject of extensive debate and claims over the past decade. Brands, networks, certification bodies, industry associations and consultancies all promote the notion of sustainable fashion. While the level of activity is impressive, however, there is often a lack of fact-based information about the actual extent of progress being made towards sustainability in the fashion industry. For instance, even though new and more sustainable materials and technologies are introduced almost every day, little data exist on the actual uptake of these solutions. More evidence and less rhetoric is needed to advance sustainable fashion to the next level.
The aim of the Sustainable Fashion Research Agenda (SFRA) is to take stock of the current state of affairs in sustainable fashion. The SFRA brings together critically reflective scholars and practitioners to take part in research-informed discussion about key aspects of sustainable fashion, including circularity and consumer behaviour.
In this way we hope to inspire a more evidence-based discussion of sustainable fashion and lay the foundation for new forms of collaboration and partnerships between academia and practice.
The SFRA Conference of 2019 was only the first of what we hope to be recurring annual conferences on sustainable fashion research. We will soon begin identifying new themes for the 2020 SFRA event and in this process, we will very much welcome all input from SFRA participants and other interested parties with knowledge and expertise in sustainable fashion. Our aim is to foster an open and inclusive discussion of the sustainable fashion research agenda both now and in the future.
