The growth of the fashion industry has also meant a considerable increase in the global consumption of clothing. As a result, there is a growing interest in approaching the design, production and business of textile clothing from a sustainable and ethical perspective.
The UK fashion industry has been at the forefront of research in this field and is a pioneer in terms of sustainable initiatives. These new ways of thinking about and consuming fashion have been integrated at all levels of the industry, beginning with higher education, through university research centers such as the Center for Sustainable Fashion, the Designer-Manufacturer Innovation Support Center and the Textile Futures Research Centre. In addition, degrees such as the MA Fashion Futures from the London College of Fashion and the MA Fashion Enterprise and Society from the University of Leeds can be taken. Large companies are part of this movement and training is the cornerstone of their research. An example of this is the collaboration between Nike and the London College of Fashion, or Marks & Spencer\'s and the University of Leeds.
Organizations and communities such as the Ethical Fashion Forum, Fashion Revolution, Green Catwalk Challenge, Love Your Clothes and Schwopping give designers the opportunity to promote their ideals and exchange best practices. Great British creators such as Stella McCartney have become world leaders for their ethical and environmentally friendly brands.
