Green Fashion: A journey from Revolution to Revolutions has opened at the London South Bank University (LSBU) Hub in London and is part of a wider research project by Dr. Mai Khang Tran who is based at the university.

The Green Fashion Exhibition features a new collection of sustainable fashion from leading designer Lan Huong. The range is made using ramie fabrics, which are 100% biodegradable and can be both reused and recycled.

The exhibit explores how Huong’s ramie designs can reduce carbon emissions and inspire consumers to make wider changes to their lifestyle that could benefit the planet.

Visitors will be able to view a replica of Huong’s sketchbook, explaining how she uses ramie to make clothing. They can also join an interactive workshop to help co-create the future of the green fashion project.

Dr Khanh is providing guided tours of the exhibit, which can be booked online in advance. She commented: “Because clothes make up 8-10% of global carbon emissions, my research is studying leading Green Fashion designer Lan Huong, so we can better understand what the fashion industry must to do to stay within the global 1.5C warming target.

“We are looking at how the use of biodegradable ramie in Lan Huong’s clothing could offer Green Fashion solutions to other industries.

“From 19 to 23 March 2024, LSBU Hub will be transformed with a pop-up exhibition where visitors can immerse themselves into a giant sketchbook of Lan Huong, learn how her ramie collection is made and how ramie has led to revolutions in industries, from furniture to agriculture. All exhibition visitors will also be able to have their say about the future of green fashion and contribute their ideas.”

The green fashion research project is funded by the Academy of Marketing and Marketing Trust.

Ahead of COP28 in 2023, at least 50% of brands and retailers were found to be not engaging suppliers in their green objectives, according to research by the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action.
