How can we teach sustainability to the next generation of designers?

Incorporating sustainability in fashion demands a radical rethinking of systems of consumption, distribution, and production, so much so that the very topic of sustainable fashion can be in and of itself somewhat controversial and, in a sense, oppositional to traditional fashion education.

As a result, students are not asked to be as critical and questioning of fashion-industry practices—and of their own—as they would be within other areas of design or the visual arts. That’s not to say they don’t, of course. Some certainly do and in quite sophisticated ways.
