Centre for Sustainable Fashion (CSF), University of Arts, London - Support Organizations @ E2Expo
Updated : Dec 2020
Centre for Sustainable Fashion (CSF) is a Research Centre of the University of the Arts London based at London College of Fashion. They shape and contribute to Fashion Design for Sustainability as a field of study, industry, and education practices. They engage in transformation design, cross-referencing fashion’s ecological, social, economic, and cultural agendas.
Established in 2008 by Dilys Williams, actively supported by other key change-makers from fashion and beyond, CSF’s starting point was human and ecological resilience as a lens for design in fashion’s artistic and business practices. They have grown to be a diverse community of world leading researchers, designers, educators and communicators with an extensive network that crosses disciplines, generations, cultures and locations, enabling them to create internationally acclaimed research, set agendas in government, business, and public arenas, and pioneer world relevant curriculum.
CSF was devised to question and challenge reactionary fashion cultures, which reflect and re-enforce patterns of excessive consumption and disconnection, to expand fashion’s ability to connect, delight and identify individual and collective values. They take a pluralistic, systemic approach, collaborating with universities, businesses, and other organisations around the world.
