University Sustainability meeting...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Sunday, June 20, 2010
I also went to a UAL sustainability meeting held in conjunction with Fashioning an Ethical Industry who are doing research into how to make UAL more sustainable in the future - it was an eye opening experience - to see it from a tutors perspective as well as learning what limits them and how they think things can and need to be changed, hopefully they also saw the potential for more student involvement as I really believe that building a community within the student body will really help move things forward! So lots was learnt and lots more needs to be done to put UAL at the forefront of the fashion industry if they want to live up to LCF's motto - "Fashioning the Future"!!


Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
