I have a question

please look at yourself and tell me:
what are you wearing today?
why did you bought it?
what do you like about your clothes?
why do you throw garments away? what are the reasons?

preparations for my graduation work

....which will be calles shift- sustainable fashion.
i would like to use this blog for discussing with everybody about the stuff i am doing...
so please feel free to add comments which can help me on my way to a very sustainable collection!
In the following posts you will find other blog-posts which are important for this subject and parts of my work I am doing.
Maybe I should introduce me quickly.....I am Caro, a fashion design student from Germany and this will be my last semester for graduation. I am forced to do a fashion collection (min. 6 Outfits) and a small written graduation work.
My collection is called: shift- sustainable fashion and deals with sustainability in general and design issues. For example: my starting point was to use green fabrics like organic cotton/hemp/silk/ and recycled poyester. Then I looked for sustainable stuff like buttons, ribbons and yarn.
This is the base for the collection and right know I am thinking about my inspiration....so if you have any ideas- please feel free!
