Weave 2.0 | Winners Announced

Weave 2.0, a challenge of the architecture competition is to design a fashion convention center to hold events and gatherings related to the fashion industry. It should be universal enough to suit the needs of different fashion industries. 

The fashion industry, thriving at the cost of the environment, is a well-known fact. Fast fashion has taken over the market with massive production and lower rates, luring customers away from sustainable alternatives which are comparatively expensive.

The waste produced includes chemical solvents and pollutants that harm the environment. The amount of resources the textile productions use is way more than how much it positively gives back to society. The laws being loose for big corporations have contributed to fashion-related pollution around the world.

Apart from the direct impact of industry, its elite and lavish stature has produced second and third-tier waste through acts like marketing. These allied industries earn huge profits by cutting on the quality of materials.

How can fashion be pushed in the direction of sustainability?

 

Can fashion events be glamorous AND eco-conscious?

High-end fashion brands conduct shows to display their new collections and products, and their methods are getting more creative and theme-based. These shows are conducted on various locations sometimes, and due to time crunch, they are designed hastily and inefficiently.

According to reports, fashion weeks/fashion shows, contribute to a lot of plastic and other waste. These shows are up for a short while but require months of planning ahead for designer sets and destinations, but little thought is given to efficient use of resources or the waste produced.
Venues end up with loads of avoidable trash such as water bottles, paper, flowers, and other decors. Several resources used to provide luxurious services to guests and attendees at the event also adds to the waste pile.

All of this waste can be avoided by designing a dedicated fashion center that can be standardized to the lavishness of fashion weeks, without compromising on sustainability.
