The aim of Fashion Ecologies is to develop new knowledge and practice around localism as a route to sustainability change in the fashion context. It does this by understanding localism not as a materials and supply chain issue or as single items, like, say, iconic British pieces or traditional materials, but as a dynamic mix of resources and interactions in an area, the sum of what a place can offer.
It engages in close examination of a place, its surroundings and the social and material resources there as the gateway for engaging a changed future for fashion.
