The Sustainable Development Goals SDG are a worldwide call to action to eradicate poverty, safeguard the earth’s ecology and climate, and ensure that people everywhere may live in peace and prosperity. Fashion production accounts for 10% of global carbon emissions, dries up water supplies, and pollutes rivers, seas and streams. Furthermore, 85 per cent of all textiles are discarded each year (UNECE, 2018), and washing some types of clothing releases considerable amounts of microplastics into the ocean. Beyond the environmental impact, the fashion industry is closely linked to labour, gender and poverty issues. Clothing and textile waste have a high environmental cost since they result in landfills and harm the environment. Changing the fashion industry’s production and consumption patterns would have a flow-on effect on many areas of development, making a visible and meaningful contribution to the success of the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development.

 

Mission

Awareness is the first step in understanding and educating Malaysia. Designers must control their whole value chains to make genuine strides toward sustainability efforts. There are ways to make money through reuse, recycling and up-cycle (RRU) plus zero textile waste with encouraging less waste and consumption.

To celebrate our abundance of Malaysian heritage and multicultural, we are challenging our creative talents to innovate and explore in the form of fashion design.

Benefits

Selected participants will be able to learn from Masterclass sessions and design challenge activities. All challenges will be guided by educators and industry experts from various backgrounds to help selected participants to create final designs. Finalists can improve their skills and knowledge of fashion design, business & sustainability
