Abstract/Artist Statement

Why is it that the clothing and textile industry is one of the largest polluters in the world? The issue at hand is the rapid use of resources in order to create clothing for profit. The outcome of this industry is clear, fast fashion hurts the planet.

Immediate change on this topic starts with you. Everyone has an impact on this industry as an individual consumer. With each person who takes the overproduction and overconsumption of clothing and textiles seriously, we can reach our goals to improve the state of our planet.

This project aims to encourage consumers to keep in mind how their decisions directly affect the planet they live on and it can be successful by reaching these consumers who don’t currently live by making sustainable choices. This project urges the audience to resist falling for fast fashion trends and instead invest in supporting the Earth.

With this project, I intended to create a new space for artists and consumers alike to gather and contribute to the solution as a community. I created an online website featuring reused and remade clothing from independent artists, an accompanying app to engage with and incentivize users and e-zines to be featured on the website for further education on the matter.

My goal with creating this outlet was to both give consumers another option when it comes to buying “new” clothing and to educate the audience on the importance of avoiding overconsumption for the health of the Earth.
