For my new brief I have been looking at sustainable design and how it links in with Fashion. One designer that has interested me is the wonderful Stella McCartney. :)
I was already aware of Stella McCartney as a designer, but hadn't realised she was so eco-friendly!
Many designers today are using and eco-friendly fashion philosophy; to support environmentalism and social responsibility through their designs. Stella McCartney combines her personal beliefs with her Fashion, she is a lacto-ovo-vegetarian and supporter of PETA, in her fashion design, Stella has a no animal policy, meaning she doesn't use fur or leather in her clothing, she only uses organic fabrics.
I feel that by having a better understanding of sustainable design now, that I can appreciate it more. I can now see why it's so important to change the way we think about design and the environment. I think I would like to look at this topic closer, and maybe consider incorporating it into my end of year Fashion Show Collection. :)
