My name is Laricea Ioana Roman and I am a student at Kingston University, London (KU ID 0942659). I am doing a Master in Marketing, Advertising and Communications and at the moment I am writing my Dissertation. My topic is related to ethical clothing, more specifically, I am investigating how personal values influence customers' decision to buy ethical clothing. In order to come up with some answers for my topic, I need some opinions from people who actually bought ethical clothes.
I'm a freelance designer and consultant by profession working on my own sustainable fashion range. I started writing my blog www.redesignforlife.blogspot.com as a journal of anything that inspired me creatively with a link to sustainability and fair trade in fashion and design. I also include posts on any innovative 'ethical' designers that catch my eye, as your work has done. You can contact me by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Im a Fashion Designer by profession and i plan to do my Masters in Design Management for Fashion Industries from London College of Fashion this fall. I also happen to have an offer letter from Nottingham Trent university for Ma in Fashion Marketing and Communications.
My research will mainly be in Ethical Fashion and Sustainable business practices. I cant decide which would be a better college. Any suggestions that can help?
