All rights reserved.Sustainability is to deliver everything we need to live, without disturbing the natural equilibrium, to future generations and to produce and sustain them in ways that they can benefit. Sensitivity to the environment is essential in sustainability. Manifesto, take it from nature, give it back to nature, or reapply it. Natural return is the goal of sustainability to produce environmentally friendly products and to recreate less consuming society. We have to spend our consumption habits for a sustainable life, we must adopt slow fashion instead of fast fashion in order to reduce the most damage to the environment in the concept of fashion which is effective in every area of our life today. Fashion, on the other hand, is a concept that is connected to a much more design than any other period, and has become a phenomenon that shapes every stage of our life, every field. The ultimate in design is the design and production of much more product variety than we can consume. This kind of production damages the neighborhood too much and confronts future generations with a world that can not be experienced. For this reason, this article will talk about the importance of sustainability, its contribution to sustainability of design, and how sustainability can be achieved through design within textiles and fashion.
