Sustainable Fashion: Launch of the book New Approaches 21.5.2014 / 12:00

  • The book, edited by Kirsi Niinimäki, opens new points of view toward environmentally positive and sustainable fashion. The book demonstrates, through both theoretical texts and practical examples, how fashion can be designed, implemented and sold with sustainable development in mind. The book gives good basic information on environmentally friendly and ecological fashion and it is well suited as study material.

    The book was produced at Aalto University's Department of Design in collaboration with the Master’s Degree Programme in Fashion and Collection Design and the multidisciplinary Master’s Degree Programme in Creative Sustainability. Sustainable development links up with Aalto University's own activities and with the content of its research and instruction. Fashion and Collection design is a new master’s degree programme which begins in the autumn of 2014.
