Fashion Values: Economy (FutureLearn)
Understand an economy in the context of fashion and create a plan for fashion that nurtures wellbeing for people and nature. Explore the relationship between economics, fashion, people, and nature. Fashion is an integral part of the global economy, yet we know that dominant economic practices in fashion are contributing to the exploitation and degradation of people and nature, perpetuating inequality and contributing to the climate emergency.
