After a piece of clothing is made, where do leftover fabrics go? How can we turn these leftover fabrics into something valuable again to facilitate the vision of circular economy?
I proposed an idea that we can get students involve in another end of fashion manufacturing process, by curating the surplus fabric from quality garment factories and create a market to allow SMEs or NGOs in need to access quality fabrics at reasonable price.
- Overstocked fabrics sourced from quality garment factories, but the amount of are not enough for large fashion chain
- Damage to the environment
A feasible solution that allow business sustainability and scalability in different countries would be ideal.
- Building partnerships with SMEs or NGO who are in need of fabrics for production, and sell them in a reasonable prices
- Identify stakeholders
- Having design students voluntarily to run the online/offline platform
(to be refined)
