From H&M’s Conscious Collection comprising pieces made from recycled materials to Prada’s Re-Nylon line consisting of upcycled nylon fashioned into garments and accessories, the fashion industry is no doubt committed to finding solutions to produce fashion more sustainably.
Sustainability can mean a few things: From economically sustaining itself as a brand to creating fashion in a manner that doesn’t negatively impact the environment. It can also mean sustaining craftspeople and their livelihoods. Case in point: Chanel with its Métiers d’Art collections. The luxury brand is committed to preserve the expertise and craftsmanship that it began buying since 1984.
