Vol. 9 No. 1 (2024): Fashion, Media and Sustainability

It is increasingly important to discuss Sustainability in all its variants, at the economic, environmental, and social levels, especially when the focus is on areas such as fashion, whose industry is one of the most responsible for the environmental damage that has been observed, increasingly, over recent times.

If, on one hand, the theme of sustainability refers us to the environmental aspect, it is emergent to discuss this theme under a social perspective where minorities are involved in important processes for the communities, where knowledge and values are valued and citizens, who, at the beginning, could be kept in a much more discrete life in the environment that surrounds them, are inserted in the active life. Papers in which sustainability approach can be widened, e.g. through lowering the environmental impacts through new design approaches, new kind of aesthetic understanding and even including critical discussions and experimentations are welcome.

Economic sustainability is crucial to the success of business, brands, industry, small and medium-sized enterprises and is also an important area to keep in focus in the discussion. New kind of economical understanding, new business models and even the aspect of degrowth in the fashion context could be one important track in sustainability knowledge.
