World 121, Exploration A

Fashion education magazine article.
Magazine page about a fashion-based curriculum with elements such as: fast fashion and artificial dyes; recycling and up cycling’ and practical methods like pattern cutting and sewing.

This page taken from a magazine in World 121 highlights the key areas now taught in the new country-wide, fashion-based curriculum, that began in schools this year. 

This change to schools’ curriculum was made in order to educate students of all ages about clothing production and consumption and give them practical skills and knowledge that they can use throughout their lives. The government hopes that this will enable our children to make better, more ethical and sustainable choices, both in the present time and throughout their lives, eventually forming a more informed society and a better future. 

This decision was made in response to the many, and increasing, negative impacts of fast fashion, overproduction and harmful production methods on both people and the environment. It is hoped that all countries around the world will adopt this new educational approach, changing the world for the better.

Does this World remind you of something?

I am keen to hear about any historical or contemporary real-world examples – whether individual practices, subcultures or mainstream activities – that this fiction brings to mind.

Please share any such examples using this form. Thank you!
