The problems of fast fashion and consumerism are often hidden in complex chains of production, trades, consumption and disposal. How can we as designers untangle and expose these issues, while also making them relevant for others?

Starting by reflecting on our own intimate experiences and behaviours, we have also researched intensively into the discourse and have created tools to communicate our findings. Through these projects that have very personal starting points, we aim to not only expose the issues that are often concealed, but also to invite others to contemplate on their own role in such system.

The projects in this exhibition were started during Aalto University’s Contemporary Design program’s course, Experimental design, which was held in collaboration with international fashion platform, New Order of Fashion in Spring 2021.

New Order of Fashion is the international platform for exceptional fashion talent. We support sustainability in fashion by presenting fresh and radical perspectives through innovation, experimentation and co-creation.1

Better to Wear

We get dressed each and every day: clothes protect us and help us express ourselves. We can dress better when we re-design the whole textile process from manufacturing to use to recycling.
