CRAFT IN DESIGN EDUCATIONS OF THE FUTURE
Since the globalization hit the Danish fashion scene in the late 1980’s, almost all production and much product development has been outsourced and deployed the industry of know-how and textile skills. This development has been mimicked within education where crafts and textile skills has played a less prominent role and decreased the level of know-how and product innovation. As educations we now stand at a crossroad in time where the sustainable agenda calls for reshoring of know-how and re-installment of textile skills for making long-lasting products and services for maintenance and repurposing. But how can we do this? And what is actually asked for in the fashion industry of today?
