For Lucy Tammam, sewing is not only part of her heritage, it’s a mission towards ethical and sustainable fashion. As a CSM alumna, Ms Tammam shares the idea behind her latest project “One Dress” and why sustainability is the biggest ̶ but also the most innovative ̶ challenge among emerging fashion designers.
The sustainable fashion movement is taking hold. Several brands around the world are committing to improving their practices and raising their standards as a response to calls to create a fashion industry that cares about its impact on society and the environment. But sustainability is not only about ecological integrity – it is also about change and social justice.
Innovation is currently challenging the status quo of many industries around the world, and fashion is certainly not immune to these shake-ups. In recent times, we have witnessed increasing efforts by fashion and luxury brands to up their game to satisfy a more demanding and eco-conscious consumer base.
