Responsible Fashion Series

*Please note that the responsible Fashion series emerged from the Fashion Colloqium series that ran from 2012-2019.​

Our value system...

Fashion has the potential to act as a catalyst for change and support at all levels – locally, nationally and internationally.

Responsible fashion requires all participants to act in a positive way that invests creatively, ethically in a non-gender biased way to build a sustainable and ethical future for the wearing and possession of dress.

Responsible Fashion events are ‘free’ and ‘accessible’ (subject to registration) in order to remove any barriers for local people (regardless of their background) to attend and contribute.

There is no one template for how an event is organized, rather we work with local organisers to develop a programme which meets their needs within this value system.

RFS goes West!

We welcome contributions that question or advance our understanding of technology’s ability to create a more human-focused and responsible fashion system. Topic areas may range from environments, creativity, manufacturing, metaverse, AI, and material advances. This conference will host a variety of formats including panel discussions, paper presentations, exhibitions and workshops. If you have a different idea or way to present, please, approach us, as we are open to all productive formats.  We hope you will join us at Arizona State University and West Valley College September 5-13, 2024.
