Abstract [en]

This chapter explores the potential role of Futures Studies, as manifested in fashion forecasting, in the endeavour of creating sustainability in fashion. It argues that forecasting can be helpful in advancing sustainability in two key ways: 1) by offering a framework for systemic and systematic scenario building at the nested levels of products, systems and paradigms 2) by offering a zone in the fashion industry for much needed reflection, explorations of values, imagination and envisioning. The approaches can be described as metadesign, a design of design itself, seeds for change, a collaborative and inclusive design process.
