Languaging Fashion and Sustainability

Nordic Textile Journal, University of Borås, Borås 2010

Mathilda contributed a paper to the Nordic Textile Journal’s special issue on communication. Her piece explores the potential of language and a process of languaging as powerful design interventions that can be auspiciously directed at the paradigm level of a system – in this instance the fashion system, with the aim of achieving more a sustainable fashion industry. The article critically and creatively synthesizes and builds upon some of the researcher’s previous work, in the realm of fashion and sustainability, and metadesign.
