Centre for Sustainable Fashion(CSF)

Centre for Sustainable Fashion (CSF) is a Research Centre of the University of the Arts London based at London College of Fashion.  

Their work explores vital elements of Better Lives London College of Fashion’s commitment to using fashion to drive change, build a sustainable future and improve the way we live.

Established in 2008 by Dilys Williams, actively supported by other key change-makers from fashion and beyond, CSF’s starting point was human and ecological resilience as a lens for design in fashion’s artistic and business practices. We have grown to be a diverse community of world leading researchers, designers, educators and communicators with an extensive network that crosses disciplines, generations, cultures and locations, enabling us to:

- Create internationally acclaimed research
- Set agendas in government, business, and public arenas  

CSF was devised to question and challenge reactionary fashion cultures, which reflect and re-enforce patterns of excessive consumption and disconnection, to expand fashion’s ability to connect, delight and identify individual and collective values.
