IFFTI x RMIT Workshop
3-5pm, 10 March 2021
School of Fashion & Textiles
I will be presenting as part of a panel for the upcoming IFFTI x RMIT Workshop, ‘Critical Conversations’.
‘Ethical and sustainability practices, material innovation and the digital transformation is changing the fashion and textiles industry requires us to work in more collaborative ways and within planetary boundaries.’
This conversation brings course leaders together, of two courses codelivered to all first-year fashion and textiles students. We discuss how interdisciplinary learnings enable students to develop shared language sets around sustainability and materials, and to recognise and establish relationships between disciplinary sectors.
Convenors: Associate Dean (Technology) Dr Jenny Underwood with Dr Tarryn Handcock and Verity Prideaux (Place and Story), Dr Georgia McCorkill (Fashion Design Reuse) and Dr Saniyat Islam (Sustainable Materials).
