Recently, I have come to an epiphany (!) about sustainability. I had considered sustainability to be one of the areas of my design and research. The shift is to realize that sustainable principles are the overarching umbrella that influences EVERYTHING. When considering that sustainability is working today for the long-term future, everything, from business models to material choices to production practices to consumer behavior needs to be considered. The background of this post is a picture of the re-invented corn silo in Cape Town that is now the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary African Art, one of the places where that inspired my realization that sustainability is about more than materials or energy. It’s also about people, systems, and behaviors. #zeitzmocca #capetown #fashionmatterstoo #wustlfashion #sustainabilbity #fashion #fashion design #designthatmatters #fashionmatters #souloffashion
