Session Descriptions:

 The Elimination of Gender Stereotypes in Fashion: There is an enormous shift in promoting gender neutrality and pushing out outdated gender stereotypes. The concept of androgynous, inter-gender, or unisex fashion are not new concepts (Reis et al., 2019). However, education and promotion of androgyny is at an all-time high.

Climate Activism: An Investigation of Collaborative Activist Design (EEF Grant Project): Three students and one faculty collaborated on a collection of activist designs intended to bring awareness to the climate-change-related issue of California wildfires.

Consumer Attitudes Toward Fast Fashion and Slow Fashion Apparel: Consumers have become accustom to the low prices of fast fashion. However, a new wave of interest in slow fashion market will bring changes to consumer shopping habits. The purpose of this study was to better understand consumer attitudes toward shopping for fast fashion vs. slow fashion based on age and gender with188 respondents ranging in age from 18 to 67 years.

Re-Imaging Second Hand Fashion: This project created a business model intended to increase sustainability within the fashion industry and reinforce the potential of the concept with supporting images of items made by students.  Items consisted of reconstructed apparel pieces to be made and sold.

    c. Repurposed Fashion, Zach Sabado, (Amy Dorie, PhD, mentor) San Francisco State University

Session Descriptions:

Greek Mythology Inspired Garment: This thesis project developed a clothing collection to express the beauty of Iranian art and artifacts. Also presented are designs inspired from Greek Mythology. When creating these fashion collections, the designer adopted hand painting techniques to the fabric surface in the form of embellishments.

Career Exploration with Job Advertisements and Industry Insights (EEF Grant Project): Many jobs exist within the academic areas of apparel design and merchandising; thus, determining a career path can be challenging. This action research project utilized the job function of an apparel product developer as a specific career example.

Teaching Textile Design So You Have Student Buy In: Teaching designing of textiles, patter on textiles, and color forms. Have students create a design with a repeat using a specific pattern. Using their design on fabric. Using their fabric to create a bag.

The Future of Apparel Design: The author made a garment design using fabric and pieces from discarded clothes that are out of style.  The popularity of fast fashion and consumer tendencies to buy low-priced clothes have led to landfill problems and added pollution as consumers demand more new styles.

Consumer Attitudes Toward Sustainable Apparel Practices: Sustainable fashion has increased in popularity and fashion customers are more aware of how their overconsumprtion impacts the environment.  The purpose of this study was to better understand consumers' attitudes toward sustainable apparel practices based on ethnicity (Latino vs. Asian) and age.

Repurposed Fashion: Throughout a sustainabiity course of this we have looked over the environmental impact of the textile industry. A few things we have learned are the social and ecological issues seen in the fashion industry as shown in the true cost documentary. We have also studied how a product is produced, used and disposed of through life cycle assessment. In any industry we tend to dismiss how the inputs and outputs of these products impact our environment. If we continue to ignore these issues we will be speeding towards the expiration of our own planet.

Session Descriptions:

Solar Umbrellas: This project (the solar umbrella) will help generate clean power over vast areas. That means that it can generate a significant amount of electrical power, and it can play a significant role in helping the city become carbon neutral by 2040 (which is the goal of the New Green Deal proposed by the Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti). 

Sharing a Small World: FCS Activities for Our Planet’s Future: By mid-century, our world will be home to nearly 10 billion people, all trying to satisfy their needs for food, shelter, employment, energy, health care and more. In the spirit of “thinking globally and acting locally,” this session will present hands-on activities that examine resources used in different countries, and the roles individuals and families here can play to conserve resources and be conscientious global citizens. Receive lesson plans in an electronic format.

Sustainable Ideologies and Practices for the Creation of Sustainable Homes: This project covers ideologies and methods of creating sustainable modern housing by use of energy generation, natural lighting, public transit proximity, reclaimed materials and resources, as well as materials with high thermal resistivity therefore reducing energy consumption for heating and cooling.

Consumer Attitudes Towards Sustainable and Fast Fashion Purchasing: The purpose of this study was to examine consumer attitudes toward sustainable vs. fast fashion retailers. The research focused on differences in buying habits during COVID-19 based on gender. The sample consisted of 116 respondents. Of the 116 respondents, the majority (76%, n=88) were female.

Consumer Awareness of Sustainable Shopping Practices: Responsible apparel-purchasing practices are on a slow rise. More access to sustainable apparel options is becoming available; however, consumers are not aware of the harms that fast fashion is posing on our environment. The purpose of this study was to research consumers’ attitudes and behaviors toward sustainable clothing and fast fashion clothing (e. g. Forever 21, Zara, H&M).
