Today, Launderette will be meeting with leading academic, Sandy Black, to discuss the sequel to her 2008 book, Echo Chic: The Fashion Paradox. Sandy is Professor of Fashion and Textile Design and Technology at London College of Fashion.
In lieu of visiting London College of Fashion this afternoon, I thought it I’d share with you this beautiful and enlightening video about the ‘Fashioning the Future‘ award-winners from 2009. Definitely very worth watching, so many lovely pieces and inspiring young talent:
‘Fashioning the Future’ is an international student awards competition and platform for sustainability in fashion that seeks to celebrate and promote emerging designers and visionary entrepreneurs. It stems from the idea that the possibilities for our future lies within the ingenuity of our creative minds. Launderette couldn’t agree more, that’s why we celebrate those working to make a difference across the industry. Being sustainable does not mean sacrificing style or quality.
Looking forward to the 2010 awards being launched in September.
