31st October and 1st November 2018
Centre for Sustainable Fashion is proud to announce it will be hosting the 6th edition of the Global Fashion Conference, with the aim of stimulating the international debate around fashion, design and sustainability through the lens of design thinking and practice, and coinciding with the celebration of CSF’s 10th anniversary.
We humans have always fashioned protection and adornment for our bodies from the world around us. Beyond this, the activities and artefacts of fashion act as a barometer of our lives and lifestyles. Today the activity of shielding and embellishing the body is a personal process as well as a global industry with powerful ramifications for the ecological and social world in which we live.
In this conference, the first to exclusively examine this area, we ask you to explore the dynamics, challenges and propositions of fashion and sustainability, to examine ‘What’s Going On?’ in this emerging field of study.
With a multi-disciplinary approach the two-day conference will be the leading international discussion forum for academics, entrepreneurs, designers, professionals and society representatives on the topics of fashion and sustainability.
The Organising Committee invites you to participate by sharing your research and/or innovative projects. All submissions must be original, unpublished work. They can include long and short papers, interactive sessions, special sessions, photography, film, performance and other modes of investigation and representation that can be accommodated within the space and time of the conference. Submissions should align with at least one of the conference themes of Power, Nature, Culture or Society.
All proposals will be submitted to blind peer review and different forms of publication will be given to the ones accepted.
DEADLINE for submission of abstracts: 31st March 2018
