Abstract

The development of fast fashion offered apparel products with a quick cycle. However, this process impacted low-quality products and raised sustainability issues. The two main focuses of this study were to examine the current fashion design curriculum among alumni and examine students' knowledge of sustainability in fashion design. This study employed a mix-method orientation—this alumni data was collected of undergraduates in fashion design education. The paper reported some preliminary empirical findings derived from questionnaires and structured interviews conducted with alumni. The discussion and conclusions of this paper were to recommend a conceptual framework of sustainable fashion design curriculum.
