PhD: Hybrid Zero Waste Fashion Practice

My zero waste fashion design research explores methods and implications of eliminating and reducing textile waste from the production of clothing at the pre-consumer stage, specifically through pattern cutting. Both sketching and construction, 2D and 3D, grounded in experimentation and resource use reduction, ultimately it is a hybrid, holistic practice which links artistic human expression and sustainable design methods. My research to date includes a “field test” undertaken with a large scale clothing company and my responses to this and initial design concepts for a hybrid zero waste fashion practice to illustrate a possible way forward for the wasteful industry I operate within.
