The twenty-first century fashion system is undergoing transformation that requires us to shift practices, worldviews and power. Inclusion, decolonization and sustainability are mindsets and actions that are required for continued success in this field.
Through research projects and knowledge exchange, the FDSC produces new insights to help lead the fashion industry in this new era. Our work brings researchers into conversation and collaboration with designers, entrepreneurs, artists and wearers to foster an inclusive, decolonized and sustainable fashion system.
Fashioning Reconciliation is a journey to share truths about the role of clothing in colonization and help organize the Indigenous design industry for cultural resurgence.
