Design for Change

Design for Change was born from our affiliation to Local Wisdom; a large UK-based research project lead by Dr. Kate Fletcher.

Design for Change examines how clothing and fashion as phenomena can be transformed by considering the use phase during the design process. In addition, focus is on how to involve the user as an active participant in the transition to more sustainable behaviors. Thus, the project subscribes to an expanded notion into new business models and production as well as integrate it in the training of future designers.
