Asos to offer sustainability training for its team, with help from London College of Fashion

March 22, 2019 0 By HearthstoneYarns

British e-tailer Asos and the Centre for Sustainable Fashion at the
London College of Fashion (LCF) have joined forces to develop a course on
circular fashion for the company’s design team.

The training, which
started earlier this month, includes a series of half-day workshops,
discussions and drop-in sessions which will teach the participants to
design clothes considering the whole product lifecycle. A total of 15 Asos
employees are participating of the pilot, according to a statement
published on LCF’s website.

”With this pilot we’re making sure our
designers have the knowledge and skills they need to put sustainability and
circularity into practice”, said Vanessa Spence, design director at Asos,
in the statement. She added that the aim of the programme is to ensure
products are made responsibly and remain in use for as long as possible
once they are sold.

The results of the pilot will then be used to
refine and amplify future trainings on sustainability within the
company.
