Sustainability not only being a massive trend but it becoming essential within the sampling process of textile and fashion design industry. Not to mention the fact were in a global pandemic!!

Having never been in a pandemic the worlds upside down. A positive to taken from this however is a rise in alternative material textiles! which I love. The pandemic has brung an uprise for locally sourced materials e.c.t. this is important as my first project was focused on alternative materials which were sustainably sourced and also locally sourced. This is important to recognise as it gives me a focus to start on, using only locally sourced materials also brings an aspect of personality to the project.

Theres a consumer issue on the rise within fashion, the “need is more” concept and how this is affected by the pandemic. the idea of a de-growth has been a discussion for most fast fashion brands for a while but being in the midst of a pandemic this has esculated, making sustainable thinking become a trend. brands are now thinking more sustainabily, adding in re-designed products with an element of sustainability. this is something which is essential when sampling.
