Abstract

The apparel brands and retailers are taking more responsibilities for their environmental impacts for sustainable fashion. According to the rise in demand, the more fashion schools, colleges and universities are reacting to these changes and educate students to have more awareness of sustainability to take forward into changing the industry. Zero waste is one of the sustainable approaches to facilitate material efficiency by minimising fabric waste, and it can be applied to the design stage, the pattern cutting, fabric cutting, and production stages. This study is focused on evaluating the zero waste design module in BA Fashion Design course in UK high education. The teaching approach, materials, and structure of the designed module were analysed using action research as well as questionnaire conducted by students. The assignments of students based on the practice-based learning were evaluated, and reflections from students were also analysed. The results were interpreted as a guideline for a new focus on optimised curricula about the technical practice of zero waste.
