Centre for Sustainable Fashion:
“LCF Professor Reina Lewis and guest Lucy Siegle and Christian Kemp-Griffin disucss the impact of ethics on matters of style. Is green still the new black or will the credit crunch make cheap clothes a renewed priority for hard-pressed consumers? As fur makes a return to some catwalks, we consider whether new smart fabrics will redefine luxury, and explore how technological advances in the design and delivery of fashion open up the bespoke experience to new consumers. Also, the politics of pleasure.”
