Fashion + Sustainability at Whitecliffe
"I am consistently impressed by the high standard of work I see from the Whitecliffe Fashion + Sustainability students. The complexities of sustainability are apparent through the students' work in a nuanced and holistic way, and reflective of the broader understanding within the industry. It is imperative that graduates entering the industry are armed with the tools to address the industry's sustainability challenges and the Whitecliffe programme gives them this foundation, while allowing creative freedom within these design constraints."
