ASOS launches sustainable fashion training programme
Share This Article:
Just over a week after the company announced they will no longer be selling cashmere, mohair, silk or feathers by next year, ASOS have launched a scheme to educate its designers on sustainable fashion. The new training course is in partnership with the London College of Fashion’s Centre for Sustainable Fashion (CSF) and is part of the 2020 Circular Fashion Commitments that Asos promised to achieve at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit last year. One of the main focuses of the course will be educating designers on ‘end-to-end’ design techniques so that the whole life cycle of the product is considered. This month, 15 members of ASOS’s design team will take part in a trial launch of the training scheme, that will see them participate in a series of workshops, discussions and drop in sessions. From this, the course will be refined and tweaked to be rolled out officially across the whole of ASOS design.
