Our love of fashion fuels a global industry, employing millions around the world. But this current system also drives pollution and waste. Circular economy principles offer a way to change this: Instead of our ‘take, make, waste’ model we should be finding ways to make clothes last longer and stay in use; ensuring that materials don’t damage the environment; and ensuring that materials can be recovered and used again. To achieve this, we need to mobilise thousands of designers around the world to help change the system.

In an age of global climate emergency, it’s sometimes hard to see what any single individual could do to make a difference.
