TED has developed a set of practice-based sustainable design strategies that assist textile and fashion designers in creating styles with reduced environmental impact. These strategies have emerged due to the need for a toolbox that helps designers navigate the complexity of sustainability issues and offers real ways for designing ‘better’.

At this Fabric Source Session, Professor Early and Senior Research Fellow Goldsworthy will host a hands-on-workshop on how to use TED’s TEN sustainable design strategies so you can get answers to questions like: How can you limit the environmental and social impact of a fashion product? How can design parameters influence waste, recyclability, chemical use, energy consumption and water consumption? You will also learn which tools are available within clean technologies, nature & history, ethical production, and business models.
Simultaneously TED will exhibit pieces and creations made based on these principles to inspire the work that you can do by using this tool. This exhibition will be public and open to all.

Due to few available seats, companies have first priority and seats are given based on a first-come, first-served basis.
