A talk by one of the authors of the Fabric for Fashion titles, focussing on sustainability in Fashion and Textile Design. Providing a wealth of information on the behaviour, properties and sustainability impacts of a wide range of natural and man-made fabrics, the books will help student fashion designers to make informed textile choices based upon an understanding of raw materials together with the processes that make up a fabric.
