EFF Source Expo - Winning Design!

I was thrilled to learn that my design (currently my profile image on this page) has been selected by EFF to grace the goodie-bags and t-shirts at the EFF Source Expo on October 6th.

I will be visiting the Source Expo as a guest of the EFF.

Can't wait!

Hi Carol, Im very flexible. I completed a Japanese-themed project with Grays School of Art last year and had Heriot-Watt University students plan, organise and model at a fashion show for the Japanese Consul General. This year's project is called 'Americana'. I completed a millinery project with North College last year and am now doing one with their sister organisation in Nuremberg. I am currently finalising arrangements for a textiles/fashion project with the Pearl Academy in Jaipur and for an Africa-themed fashion show. I prefer the projects to have an international theme and positive social benefits because that encourages students to research other cultures and think more globally. I can give you more details and images if you contact me at

Dear Carol
Hello there, my name is Katrina O’Brien and I am currently doing primary research for my Dissertation. My question is: “Could the Fashion and Textile Industry be greener by using modern technology?
A brief intro: I will be doing my dissertation on sustainability; I am a strong believer that the Industry cannot continue on its present course. I will give a quick over view on clothes then paper. My point about technology and paper is that we all know Fashion is not only clothes but magazines and books and so on. Fashion magazines are a huge part of the Fashion and Textile industry; tragically they do as much damage as the clothes. But sadly magazine companies aren't really being that helpful when I ask them about environmental awareness.
I was wondering if you knew anyone that could point me in the right direction or if you yourself knew anything that could help me? Thanks! If you would like to email me, my address is
Take care and thank you for your time

Dear Carol,

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.

This is the reason why I am kindly asking you to help me and fill in my questionnaire. It will take you no more than 10 minutes and you can win three books and £30 vouchers!

Thank you for your consideration,

Laricea Ioana Roman
