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? If you want I can also do a case study about your company to prove my point. Thanks! If you would like to email me, my address is email@example.com
Take care and thank you for your time
Hi, your new venture sounds exciting and very much in line with what I am trying to achieve with my fabrics. I would like to explore the possibility of collaboration.
'I find your entrepreneurship inspiring, in particular the type of product. Tartans that inspire self-pride, a kind of cultural connectivity that is positive by using a product from one culture to infuse cultural relevance in another. In a subtle way it represents the entirety of what multiculturalism, interculturaism or whatever 'isms' seek to achieve.'
